Resurgo helps churches and communities to develop excellent, sustainable initiatives that overcome social challenges. By bringing together skills and resources from across the wider neighbourhood, we tackle complex issues in a truly transformative way.
Resurgo was founded in Hammersmith in 2003 with a desire to build on the church’s strong tradition of social action. We see a huge potential for local churches and communities to work together to overcome social challenges. While the initiatives we support are linked to churches, they involve and serve the whole neighbourhood; people of all faiths and none.
Our flagship initiative, Spear, is a programme run through partner churches, working with unemployed 16-24-year-olds to help them overcome disadvantage and develop the skills they need to enter the workplace. Resurgo’s other key initiatives are Resurgo Ventures, supporting emerging social entrepreneurs to make a positive impact on society and Resurgo Consulting, providing coaching services to organisations to increase trust and improve outcomes.
In 2013, Resurgo won the Guardian Charity Awards for our outstanding contribution to social welfare, excellence and innovation among small and medium-sized charities.
