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.
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.
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.
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.
Deloitte has delivered over £4m of support to social businesses to enable them to overcome business challenges, securing new contracts and investment in order to grow.
