Our strategic partners financially support us to expand our work - either through developing new programmes or extending into new areas. We couldn’t grow without them and thank them for all their support.
Our employer partners periodically host visits to their workplaces by groups of students, who get a chance to meet employees and ask questions. Volunteers and students then get to work on a challenge that gives a flavour of what the organisation does.
The vision of the Comino Foundation is of a Britain in which people are equipped and motivated to live fulfilling and purposeful lives and therefore contribute to sustaining a prosperous and responsible society. The Comino Foundation is a registered UK charity, founded in 1971 by the engineer, inventor and industrialist Dimitri Comino OBE and his daughter Anna. Dimitri was convinced that more people could “solve problems and get results” if they understood the process of achievement. He was keen to develop that understanding throughout the UK education system and was committed to changing British attitudes to industry, particularly manufacturing. The Foundation looks for better ways of developing young people’s capabilities, their capacity and desire to make things happen – their zest and appetite to learn, to create, to change things for the better, for themselves and others. It encourages and supports innovative ventures designed to enable people to function effectively and to thrive.
