Papworth Trust has been named as one of the 13 new charity partners of Deloitte, as part of their One Million Futures social impact initiative.

The partnership is part of the firm’s five-year programme to help one million people get to where they want to be through access to education and employment.

Jo Revitt, corporate partnership fundraiser at Papworth Trust, said: “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.”

One Million Futures has already made an impact for over 475,000 people’s futures while contributing over £10 million to society. 

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. 

“Based on our experience of what works, these new and existing partnerships will enable our people to have an even greater impact in the communities in which we work. 

“We have identified organisations that are supporting some of the hardest to reach groups in society and we will help them access learning and skills.
“Across our regions and nations, we are working with charities that are focused on having a positive impact in the local community.”

Initiatives have included nurturing individuals through mentoring and employability skills workshops through to supporting organisations with their strategic ambitions.
