Social Mobility Business Partnership
VISIT WEBSITE ➦
STRATEGIC PARTNER
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.
TRIP-HOSTING EMPLOYER
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.
