ORT UK is the UK arm of World ORT, the world’s largest Jewish education and training charity.

Currently operating in more than 30 countries, ORT helps vulnerable communities to become self-sufficient, breaking the cycle of poverty and charitable dependence. Our focus is on making an Impact Through Education and helping young people bridge the gap between opportunity and ability.
Since 1921 ORT UK (formerly British ORT) has been supporting World ORT projects around the world, raising much-needed funds via events and direct fundraising. The key geographical areas of focus for ORT UK’s work are Israel and the former Soviet Union. You can view ORT UK’s latest fundraising video here.

Established in 2009, the programme currently runs in six Jewish secondary schools in London, four state schools in the Borough of Camden and one state school in the Borough of Barnet, with almost 250 students each year. Hundreds of mentors in a variety of industries take part, assisting students to realise their true potential and achieve their ultimate career ambitions.
