Giving back to society
As a responsible business, we don’t just think about ourselves or what we’re working towards today. We play our part in shaping the world we want for tomorrow.
And your support is vital. By getting involved you can help to create a more sustainable planet and better communities for all.
Here’s how you can get involved:
Step into the classroom and share your skills
Through our School Enterprise Programme, you can develop financial literacy and entrepreneurial skills in 11–13-year-olds. Students UK-wide are learning key skills through our programme, which inspire them to set up and run their own micro-businesses. Any profits generated are invested in microfinance loans to support entrepreneurs in the developing world.
There’s more. Why not support Year 12 students to become career ready through our Interview Skills initiative? Alternatively, the Rise initiative enables you to join forces with other professional services firms to enhance young people’s employability prospects – particularly in hard-to-reach locations.

Help refugees develop employability skills
We work with Breaking Barriers to help refugees find meaningful employment and integrate successfully into British culture. We offer skills development workshops and six-month work placements to help build skills and confidence.
By mentoring diverse talent on placement or sharing your experiences at a workshop, you can help refugees to realise their potential and find the right role in which to thrive.
Protecting our planet
If you’re committed to tackling the climate crisis, you can help us do the same. As the first UK accountancy firm in the world to sign up to Science Based Targets, our near-term goal is to reduce our carbon emissions by 21% by 2023 and we will reach zero emissions by 2050 latest. This means changing both how we operate and behave.
Becoming an Environmental Champion means you can drive change across our business and help reduce our impact upon the environment.
Invest in global entrepreneurs and change lives
To grow their businesses, entrepreneurs in the developing world need ready access to safe finance. Microfinance offers easy and affordable loans when traditional banking is simply not available.
From pig farmers to pineapple growers, microloans elevate individuals and communities out of poverty. Join your colleagues by investing in entrepreneurs in the developing world – thus creating a truly sustainable future.
Support your local community
You can get involved in the many ways we fundraise for charities. And we also support local communities by offering our time, skills and expertise. Our Matched Funding Scheme will add to your individual fundraising efforts.
Whatever cause you care about, we’ll back you to support it.
