The Aldridge Attributes are a central platform for the Foundation’s work. They have been defined by Sir Rod’s experience and beliefs. We see problem-solving, creativity, determination, passion, risk-taking and teamwork as the skills that best prepare young people for the productive lives we want them to live.

The impact of the Aldridge Foundation is best shown through the lives it has changed. These young people, brimming with potential, have been inspired to make a difference to their lives and the lives of those around them.

These are the citizens of the future and their stories illustrate just how much can be gained if we raise achievement, create aspiration and unlock ambitions. Their stories are representative of thousands of young people that the Foundation’s work has supported. In addition, they demonstrate the power of the Aldridge Attributes.
