SILVER: UBS & The Bridge Academy

PROJECT: A decade of turning dreams into reality

The Project

For over 30 years, UBS has delivered an impactful community programme in the neighbouring borough of Hackney. 2017 marked 10 years since UBS founded its flagship education partnership, The Bridge Academy in Hackney, a secondary school that UBS co-founded with a client to close the attainment gap between those from the poorest and wealthiest backgrounds.

UBS commit funding and harness the skills and commitment of our employees (over 61,800 hours since inception) to support the Bridge in providing excellent and inclusive education, rooted in the local community. Working in close partnership with local organisations, our education programme reduces educational inequality and increases the employability of young people through mentoring, skills development, work experience and academic support.
