Best Community Development (Legacy)
UBS’s flagship education partner is The Bridge Academy – a secondary school UBS helped found in 2003. The firm was invited to open the school as part of the UK Government’s Academy programme due to its established support of education in Hackney. The partnership is unique in its scale, sustainability and impact. The partnership started with a £1.25million donation from UBS, matched by a Wealth Management client. From 2003, up until the end of 2015, over 4,500 UBS employees had contributed nearly 50,000 hours of volunteer time to Bridge activities, whilst employees, client’s and suppliers have donated a further c£1.5million.
