At KPMG, we are committed to being a responsible business and to working with society and our communities for better. We have been working in national partnership with the NSPCC since April 2018, raising £1.5 million - £1,060,000 of this money can pay to run Childline for 35 days and £440,000 of this money can support 146,000 primary school children through the Speak out, Stay safe programme.

We are now looking for our next National Charity Partner to be voted in by KPMG colleagues. The new partnership will run from December 2021 for a period of two years, with the aim of raising £1m.

Ultimately, we want our National Charity Programme to continue to deliver cohesion, engagement and connection to our communities and enable us to bring our people together in this new hybrid world of working and volunteering from both offices and home.

After the last 18 months we are looking for a National Charity who can support society to build back better following Covid-19. It is also essential that the charity has national reach across every office in the UK including our Scottish offices.
