Deloitte launches search for charity partners

Melanie May | 20 January 2016 | News

https://www.whitehat-seo.co.uk/website-auditProfessional services firm Deloitte is seeking applications from charities and social enterprises for its new Society Partnership programme.
It is looking for up to 40 new partners to join it in the programme, which combines Deloitte’s previous Charity Partnership and Social Innovation Pioneers programmes and which will focus on the theme of creating and inspiring ‘One Million Futures’ by helping people improve their job prospects.
Applicants must be able to demonstrate how their work impacts employability, either by raising aspirations, improving skills or helping to develop leaders. Deloitte will work with the partners to help them positively influence people’s futures, such as young people, those not in employment or training, those who have been out of work due to illness or those changing careers.
One charity will be assigned to each of Deloitte’s UK regional offices, and five to its London office. The five London charity partners will each be allocated one of Deloitte’s service lines: Tax, Consulting, Audit, Financial Advisory and Internal Client Services. The social enterprises will receive support from across the firm’s regional and London offices.
Under the programme, each of the partners will receive free access to professional skills and expertise, as well as the opportunity to receive tailored pro bono help. Charity partners will also receive access to fundraising support, and all partners will have the opportunity to network as the programme progresses.
Claire Burton, head of corporate responsibility at Deloitte, said:

“We have set an ambitious target to focus our efforts on impacting one million futures and we are seeking innovative and exciting new society partners to help us achieve this in the UK. We are looking forward to seeing a broad range of organisations apply and working together to really make an impact that matters.”

Applications are open until midnight on 14th February, and more information on applying for the Society Partnership can be found online.
Deloitte has been working with Alzheimer’s Society, Mind and Prostate Cancer UK for the past three years, having chosen them as its charity partners in 2013.
