Life at Deloitte
Who we support
Making an impact on business and wider communities
Our sponsorships and programmes aim to extend our positive impact across communities, sport, the arts and business. We support others to make progress where it matters most whilst offering exciting opportunities for our people and clients to experience who we are in different ways.
Innovation and entrepreneurship
Innovation and Entrepreneurship
London Business School
The Deloitte Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (DIIE) is a long-term partnership with London Business School which launched in 2011. The goal of the Institute is to improve our understanding of the practice of innovation and entrepreneurship worldwide. The Institute provides intellectual leadership on innovation and entrepreneurship, providing us with world class insight for our people and our clients.
As Professional Services Partner of the British Olympic Association, Deloitte will be providing expertise through the provision of secondees working at the heart of the organisation and leading the programme planning for Rio 2016. Utilising our experience and knowledge from previous Games, Deloitte is helping ensure the BOA leaves no stone unturned so the environment in Rio is the best it can be for the athletes. If the planning is right, it will give Team GB the best chance possible of making history.
British Paralympic Association
Our sponsorship of the British Paralympic Association has gone from strength to strength since 2007, supporting disability sport at both grassroots and elite level. The partnership reflects the passion of our people for sport and high achievement and through fundraising and services we are helping them on the road to Rio 2016. Deloitte Parasport, our joint initiative, signposts disabled people to sporting opportunities and now boasts a disability club database of over 2,000 clubs in the UK.
Deloitte Corporate 13.1 & Deloitte Corporate 50
Partnering with the Royal Parks Foundation, Deloitte is the proud sponsor of two corporate events that not only provide a physical challenge for our people and clients, but helps raise money for our three national charity partners. Both half-marathon and Ultra distances bisect London’s magnificent Royal Parks, passing many world-famous landmarks en route.
Deloitte Ride Across Britain
Deloitte Ride Across Britain is our flagship annual corporate challenge. Since the inaugural event in 2010, the nine day cycle ride, a 969 mile end-to-end journey, sees over 100 Deloitte riders and clients participate every year. With the challenge raising over £1.5m for the British Paralympic Association, riders are supporting disability sport from grassroots to the podium.
Royal Opera House
Deloitte has been a top-tier partner of the Royal Opera House since 2007. Out of a shared appetite to push boundaries and challenge perceptions, Deloitte Ignite was born; our own annual contemporary arts festival that brings new talent to new audiences, creating a long-term partnership within the Arts.
Our aim is to play a proactive role in helping our charity partners deal with key organisational challenges, supporting them by raising funds but also providing time and expertise through volunteering and pro-bono support. The focus of our support until 31 May 2016 is on our three national charity partners, voted for by staff: Alzheimer’s Society, Mind and Prostate Cancer UK.
Deloitte is working with Teach First to provide a holistic support package to schools, giving pupils from low income communities a greater understanding of the opportunities available to them beyond education, whilst equipping them with the skills they need to succeed in the workplace. Deloitte Access will use the firm’s people to support over 1,000 students from Teach First schools as they develop the skills needed to access the best possible opportunities after their education.
