Golden Opportunity Skills and Development (GOSAD) formerly known as Golden Opportunity Youth Association (GOYA) is a charitable organisation based in the London Borough of Ealing and was founded in 2003 by a group of disaffected young people, who felt let down by the lack of appropriate services and interventions for young people in the Southall area of the borough. The three young people who decided to set up the organisation came from three different backgrounds in terms of ethnicity (Irish, Sikh and Somali). In addition to their bonding friendship, they all shared the same social-economic disadvantages that included not having the best starts in life.

GOSAD’s aim is to be the provider of choice, celebrating diversity and enabling individuals to realise their development, training goals and aspirations. Their vision is changing peoples lives through programmes on Education, Health, and Skills Training.
