Big Four accounting firm Deloitte has announced its new charity partners for 2019.
The new charity partnerships will start on 1 June 2019 and will focus on helping people get access to education and employment. A number of charity and social enterprise partnerships will be concluding at the end of the current contract cycle on 31 May, with new and continuing partnerships starting on 1 June.
East of England charity, Papworth Trust, is one of the charities beginning its partnership with Deloitte, whilst big names such as Mind, Scope and the St John’s Ambulance will also work alongside the accountancy firm during 2019.
David Sproul, senior partner and chief executive of Deloitte UK, said: “Making an impact on one million futures was an ambitious target in just five years, but through the commitment and goodwill of our people, we are making a positive impact in society. Together we’ve delivered 74 pro bono projects – valued at £1.85m, and our people have given over 67,000 hours. With partnerships from Aberdeen to Jersey, we are committed to changing people’s futures.”
Jo Revitt, corporate partnership fundraiser at Papworth Trust, added: “We are delighted to be partnering with Deloitte under their One Million Futures social impact initiative. Papworth Trust has been making an impact on the lives of disabled people in Cambridgeshire and across the East of England for more than 100 years and this partnership will further enhance our crucial work.
“We look forward to working with staff at Deloitte and showcasing how their support will make a direct and positive impact on the lives of local disabled people through our key areas of housing, work, care and day services.”
