Product of a Postcode’s vision is a future where every person has the opportunity to become the very best version of themselves. Our mission is to empower our young and disadvantaged through the passionate provision of real, meaningful education to make positive life choices.
- Product of a Postcode is a charity that was set up in 2014 in memory of Kim Hutton a youth worker in London’s East End, by her brother Gary.
- For the first seven years POAP managed to run on zero grant funding; surviving solely through donations and fund raising events only.
- Product of a Postcode was founded in order to provide mentoring and guidance to the young people of Inner-City London and now have expanded across the UK.
- Due to the success and popularity of POAPs services provided, the Charity’s reputation has grown whereby we have now worked with mainstream schools, PRUs, prisons, young offenders’ institutions, local authorities and several professional football clubs. We are now in a position to expand regionally, and nationally to continue our work.
