Creating a legacy with our National Charity Partners

Raising £2.65 million for Mind, Alzheimer's Society and Prostate Cancer UK over our three-year partnership

In June 2013, our people selected Alzheimer’s Society, Mind and Prostate Cancer UK as our National Charity Partners. For the last three years we have worked together on a unique, four-way collaboration to raise awareness, deliver significant and sustainable social impact through pro-bono interventions and surpass fundraising targets.

The partnership has seen 400 Deloitte people volunteer 29,480 hours of their time to support the three charity partners. Since 2013, 3,754 people have engaged with the partners through the firm’s charity networks, while nearly 3,500 participants took part in various fundraising events.

Our fundraising activities alone have raised over £2.6 million for the three charity partners. However, it is our pro bono projects that will leave a lasting legacy. Through the charity programme, we have donated almost £1 million of our services free of charge, allowing the charities to use our professional skills and capabilities to deal with key organisational challenges. Recently, we were awarded a Corporate Engagement Award recognising the firm’s pro-bono work as part of the charity partnership.

Through the partnership, Deloitte has enabled Mind to fund a Mind Infoline advisor to respond to over 22,000 calls for help, distribute 370,000 mental health information booklets across 150 shops; train 168 shop managers and volunteers across 56 shops to better support shop visitors (2.6 million+ annually) and staff.

Alzheimer's Society has been able to fund the Newcastle Doctoral Training Centre, developing the skills of the next generation of dementia researchers. The firms funding has also enabled Alzheimer's Society to provide vital support services across the UK, ensuring people affected by the condition receive the support and guidance they need to live well with dementia.

Our work has also allowed Prostate Cancer UK to connect with 350,000 people, give out over 185,000 pieces of literature and have over 50,000 in-depth conversations as part of its Search and Rescue programme.
