Alumni Pioneers

From 2012-2016 Deloitte supported 65 high performing social enterprises across a range of sectors, industries and regions, providing them with a tailored support package to help them to grow to scale and become investment-ready. Over the four years, Deloitte invested over £1m each year to this ground-breaking programme.

Our Impact

At the end of every year we commissioned our programme partner Social Enterprise UK (SEUK), to carry out an independent evaluation of the programme impact.

Year 4
To grow our impact and become more targeted, social enterprises were selected around the theme of employability. We worked with 11 social businesses and there was a collective impact on nearly 100,000 individuals. Read more in SEUK’s ‘Focusing impact’ report.

Year 1-3
Across the first three years of the programme we engaged over 2,000 Deloitte people, who provided over 15,000 hours of time and completed over 50 bespoke pro-bono projects for our Pioneers. Read more in the ‘Impact that Matters’ report.
