Urban Promise UK exists to serve children and young people, helping them to thrive and break through barriers to opportunity and success. We provide mentoring, training, and holistic support in the Marks Gate community of Barking and Dagenham in London.

We belong to a global family of over 30 organisations, all working toward the same goal – seeing children and young people develop into leaders who will transform their community and the lives of those around them.


Having struggled to get an after school club that my son likes, enjoys but also where he feels his contribution is valued. He has flourished in his commitment and learning. His care for others has greatly improved where he now considers his actions and response to family and friends with care and empathy.

Thanks for enabling him to positively contribute to our community.

Parent of a Student Leader

I thank Urban Promise for all the support that they have given my child during her time there. They have supported her massively with her reading, they encourage her to try new foods and have enhanced her confidence.

Thank you to all the team at Marks Gate Urban Promise, as a parent I can’t thank you enough.
