Launched in 2016, One Million Futures aims to help one million people get to where they want to be; whether it’s in the classroom, the workplace or the boardroom. We are working with over 50 of the most inspiring social enterprises, charities and schools to achieve our ambition, providing them with a package of support comprising pro bono, volunteering and fundraising.

In addition to our locally-led Society Partnerships, we also have a number of national partners and procurement relationships that help us focus our efforts across the UK.
Together we want to ensure that no child’s education success is limited by their socio-economic background. Through a combination of strategic sponsorships, partnership events and volunteering activity in Teach First schools, we’ve supported over 60,000 students in the last year.
We have worked with the national charity Volunteering Matters for over 12 years to deliver our employee volunteering programme. Each year we deliver around 40 ‘Impact Days’ throughout the UK, using our skills and expertise to support a cross-section of our local communities.
We are a founding partner and proud supporter of BeyondMe, a movement working to strengthen charities and social enterprises and drive social change using the unique talents, networks and resources of city professionals. In the past year alone over 15 Deloitte BeyondMe teams (147 volunteers) have contributed £12,814 and 3,344 skilled-volunteer hours to social issues they are passionate about.
We are supporting Deloitte alumnus Colin Hegarty to grow his award winning maths tutorial business. HegartyMaths is now being used in 20% of UK secondary schools and by 10,000 teachers to plan classes, assess pupils and set and track homework.
We have a long-standing relationship with Wildhearts covering procurement (Wildhearts Office), recruitment (Micro Tyco) and advocacy (Business for Good lunches). In 2017 alone the relationship helped transform the lives of over 8,500 individuals through microfinance and entrepreneurial training.
From Babies with Love
Through our procurement relationship with From Babies with Love we are supplying organic baby clothes as gifts to all employees on parental leave. The service has directly supported over 2,700 children to date, with 1,897 gifts being sent to employees.
How are we making a difference?
Aligned to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals we want to reduce inequality by helping people to overcome barriers to education and employment. We are focused on providing opportunity for ambitious individuals and disadvantaged groups to grow and thrive in whatever career they choose. We’re helping the talent of tomorrow to raise their aspirations and overcome barriers to employment, and we are pioneering exciting development programmes for our own people and clients.
One Million Futures brings to life our purpose to make an impact that matters, whilst supporting our Global WorldClass commitment to help 50 million futures prepare for a world of opportunity.
