Connected communities

In addition to our own initiatives we are building connected communities of partners to widen our impact. If you would like to partner with ICAEW Foundation please contact us.

ICAEW member firms


October 2019: ICAEW Foundation and Deloitte are pleased to announce the launch of a mentoring programme for students in receipt of an ICAEW Foundation bursary in a number of universities across the UK. The programme will cover essential matters such as study support, career planning and wellbeing for each student. The Mentoring Matters programme is also open to students who applied for an ICAEW Foundation bursary but were unsuccessful. 

Deloitte is collaborating with ICAEW Foundation to deliver the mentoring support under its One Million Futures initiative. 

“Coupled with the financial support our Changing Futures bursaries deliver, access to Mentoring Matters is a vital component in underpinning both the wellbeing of our students during their study journey as well as their future career success."

Kreston Reeves

The generosity of ICAEW member firms is particularly key to unlocking the potential of the Foundation’s work. We are delighted that Kreston Reeves is the first ICAEW member firm to support our Building Futures bursary programme and finance.

EY Foundation Smart Futures Programme

ICAEW Foundation and EY Foundation previously partnered to support a number of students on EY Foundation’s Smart Futures programme with bursaries. This support also gave young people access to paid work experience improving their chances of getting a job, doing a degree apprenticeship or going onto higher education after school or college. ICAEW also delivers a one day business challenge to all students on the Smart Futures programme.

PwC and ICAEW Foundation Bursary

ICAEW Foundation and PwC previously partnered to support talented but financially disadvantaged students on the PwC Flying Start partnership degree programmes, most recently with four student bursaries in the universities of Newcastle, Reading and Nottingham.
