CLOSE THE COVID GAP CAMPAIGN
We’re on track to achieve the target set in our Strategic Plan of supporting 2,500 Associates each year by 2022. However, with Covid-19 worsening inequality of opportunity, there is now an urgent need to rapidly expand the number of places on our programme. Students are facing lost learning opportunities, cancelled internships, and significant financial hardships.
That’s why we’re aiming to raise £250,000 in 2021 to help address inequalities that have been exacerbated by Covid-19. The funds raised in our #CloseTheCovidGap campaign will be used in line with our regional expansion strategy, which focuses on supporting more students from social mobility coldspots outside of London, including areas that have been hit particularly hard by Covid-19.
