About EY Foundation

The EY Foundation was established on the 1st July 2014 as an independent charity. We were founded by EY - the professional services firm – and a major corporate donor, to support young people disadvantaged in the labour market into education, employment or enterprise.

The EY Foundation is a pioneering model of a corporate Foundation. It brings together the professional rigour and resources of a large corporate with the innovation and dynamism of a start-up charity. It has at its heart the purpose of inspiring and supporting disadvantaged young people across the UK to fulfil their work potential. To do this we convene employers and other key stakeholders to reduce barriers to work for young people and enhance their employability.

The EY Foundation helps young people disadvantaged in the labour market to find alternative routes into employment, education or enterprise. Our work involves designing, developing and running our own services; Smart Futures, Our Future and Accelerate, as well as raising independent funds to support new initiatives and reach more young people across the UK.

We are unique in our position as the link between employers and young people, having strong existing relationships with both. This allows the services we deliver to have the capability to make both young people become employer-ready and employers become young people-ready. It also supports social entrepreneurs to grow their businesses so that they can also help young people get work ready and create local jobs for them.

  • Over the next coming years we are determined to build on our national reach across the UK and provide local services tailored to local need. We will do this by building relationships with:

  • A wide range of local and national organisations including: schools, further education and higher education providers

  • Employers large and small, across sector, social enterprises, public sector and charities all of whom can enhance our services and support young people

  • Intermediary organisations including Local Enterprise Partnerships and Chambers of Commerce

  • Funding bodies.

The EY Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees comprised of an independent Chair, Patrick Dunne, independent Trustees, EY Partners and Alumni, and an EY staff representative. Trustees have the responsibility for the direction, governance and financial stability of the Foundation.
