The social Mobility Foundation (SMF) is a charity which aims to make a practical improvement in social mobility for young people from low-income backgrounds. The SMF was founded by Linkson Jack in 2005 in order to provide opportunities and networks of support for 16-17 year olds who are unable to get them from their schools or families. Eight years on, the first students supported by them have gone on to be successful in achieving degrees and graduate entry jobs.
