Through our campaigns, we endeavour to eliminate barriers and challenge perceptions which adversely affect work and skills development opportunities for marginalised groups.

Our extensive and influential campaigns champion inclusion & diversity, neurodiversity, youth engagement and underline the challenges of digital poverty.

I am so proud to be part of a team which is really putting a focus on inclusion and diversity. We have made a conscious effort to continuously improve our processes to ensure that things are inclusive and accessible and it’s great to see that the focus is making a difference.
