We believe every child should have a dream for the future. Our mission is to ignite those dreams.

We are a charity that works with children growing up in disadvantaged areas of Hull and East Yorkshire who may not have the same opportunities as others. We aim to light up every path that a child could take and help create dreams for the future. We do this by providing experiences that broaden horizons and raise aspirations including a London Experience; a day at a local business learning about the industry; a sleepover in the Natural History Museum or an intergenerational experience, bringing the young and the elderly together.
