Founded over 25 years ago, Five Lamps is a social enterprise based in the United Kingdom with the following tagline: "Creating Possibilities: Improving Lines." The organization does this through a variety of channels including personal loans, debt advice, youth services such as clubs and activities, business coaching and training, and employment and volunteering opportunities. In essence, youth ownership is the name of the game.
"Five Lamps aims to transform the lives of individuals and their families by helping them to find work, start their own business, improve their finances and improve the aspiration of young people," writes the registered charity on their website. "All of our work is underpinned by our commitment to 'Making People Matter."
