We are proud that our support to local communities improves individual well-being and aspirations. This not only benefits individuals, it ultimately helps social mobility and community cohesion.
We want to ensure some of the hardest to reach sections of our communities get the help and support they badly need to integrate and get the opportunities that others take for granted.
