One Million Futures

Our purpose in action

One million futures made brighter

In 2016, we set out to help one million people get to where they want to be through access to education and employment. We worked with 70+ societal partners and today we have officially reached this milestone. To celebrate, we’ve asked five people to share their stories. Watch for a powerful reminder that sometimes a helping hand can make all the difference. Learn more here.

What is One Million Futures?

Our purpose in action Local partnerships National partnerships

One Million Futures is the UK firm’s social impact ambition. As the Fourth Industrial Revolution unfolds, millions of people are being left behind, unable to fulfil their aspirations and potential. Focusing our efforts on addressing inequality, our goal is to help one million people get to where they want to be through access to education and employment.

Part of our Global WorldClass commitment to empower 50 million people by 2030, One Million Futures is our purpose in action: making an impact that matters in society.

How are we making a difference?

We believe we make the greatest societal impact when our professionals use their skills and expertise to help people. So that's what we do. Aligned to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, One Million Futures focuses on reducing inequality, helping people to overcome barriers to education and employment.

Some, we help directly through activities such as mentoring programmes and apprenticeships. Others, we support by working with a broad range of societal partners across the country, amplifying their impact to create brighter futures.

Bringing to life our purpose – making an impact that matters – One Million Futures is the UK contribution to Deloitte’s Global WorldClass commitment to empower 50 million people by 2030.
