Drive Forward Foundation
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.

What it does
We are the Drive Forward Foundation, a charity with one mission…. To equip care leavers with all the tools they need to take charge of their lives; their lives now and their lives in the future. We want to inspire care leavers to discover and unleash their own true potential; to seize opportunities and go out into the world to really make change happen.
