One Million Futures will be delivered through a number of key programmes including our Society Partnerships.
In Spring 2016, our employees voted for our new Society Partners – the 19 charities and eight social businesses we will work with alongside our existing 18 Deloitte Access partner schools. The partnerships are aligned to each of our regional offices and London service lines, to make an impact at the local level whilst contributing towards our joint impact goal.
Over the next three years we will support the charities, social businesses and schools, all of which are aligned to our focus on education and employment, to maximise their impact on the futures of those they support.
In addition to providing fundraising assistance, we want to play a proactive role in helping our 19 charities create sustainable solutions to some of their key organisational challenges. We provide the time and expertise through volunteering and pro bono client services to maximise the impact they have on the futures of those they support.

This is built on the success of our previous National Charity Partnerships. From 2013 to 2016 we worked with Alzheimer's Society, Mind and Prostate Cancer UK, providing them with fundraising and pro bono client services. Find out about the legacy we have created with previous charity partners.
We will be supporting eight socially innovative businesses, providing them with a package of support to help them grow to scale and become investment-ready.

This programme is built on our Social Innovation Pioneers programme (now referred to as our Alumni Pioneers) which has supported 65 social businesses over the last four years by helping them grow their business and scale their social impact. Find out more about our Alumni pioneers.
Schools (Deloitte Access programme)
Deloitte Access is an education programme delivered in 18 schools in collaboration with Teach First and is designed to raise aspiration, support achievement and provide opportunities for students in low-income communities. The programme aims to improve social mobility and support a fairer society by giving young people from under-represented groups the ambition, skills and opportunities they need to access professional careers at companies like Deloitte, through workshops and interventions designed to develop young people’s:
- cultural capital and understanding of societal issues
- understanding of innovation and how to run a business
- ability to work in and to lead teams
- employability skills including CV writing, interviewing, and presentation skills.
During the last three years almost 4,000 Deloitte volunteers have supported over 12,000 students.
