It is through the Foundation that we targeted to enhance the life chances of over 10,000 young people by 2020. In a bid to reach this target we have worked with young people from schools, colleges, in the care system and in the prison system to improve their wellbeing, access to skills and/or employment opportunities. In 2018 alone our social value work touched the lives of over 100,000 people across all age groups. This work was recognised in 2018 by the Queen's Awards for Enterprise, where we were only one of six companies to achieve this accolade in the category of Promoting Opportunity through social mobility.
