Seer 365 will be fundraising for The Access Project charity throughout 2022.
At Seer 365, we work every day with a focus on empowering individuals & organisations to achieve their goals and unleash their true potential. That is why we are proud to announce our first charity partner, The Access Project, an organisation looking to achieve a very similar objective.
The Access Project support disadvantaged students in getting into top universities through a unique combination of tuition and in-school mentoring. Their vision deeply resonated with our people – that every young person, regardless of background, can make the most of education, unlocking their potential and creating a fairer society.
Sam Dharmasiri, our Chief Executive commented, “Not only will we be actively fundraising for this worthwhile cause, but we will also be exploring other ways that we may be able to provide hands-on support for the charity, most notably with one-to-one volunteer tutoring. As a business, Seer 365 will match pound-for-pound all money raised by our employees for this great cause during the coming year.”
Thanks to the support from Seer 365, The Access Project will be able to help more disadvantaged young people like Ayesha. Ayesha, who is currently in Year 12 and studying for her A levels at a school in West Yorkshire, struggled with GCSE Maths last year. "This had always got me down," she told us. “I had 15 tutorials with The Access Project. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I opened up my results on Results Day to see that I had jumped two whole grades after just seven weeks of hard work and determination.” Thanks to her tutorials, Ayesha is now on the road to university.
Nathan Sansom, Chief Executive of The Access Project, said: "It is fantastic to welcome Seer 365 into our family of partners. The COVID-19 pandemic has hit disadvantaged young people enormously - and so our tuition and mentoring has never been more needed. Thanks to support from Seer 365 we'll be able to continue supporting our students to secure places at top universities."
About The Access Project
The Access Group helps talented young people from disadvantaged backgrounds reach top universities so they can realise their potential and access a range of more rewarding careers. They do this by matching each young person with two mentors, one-to-one, including a volunteer tutor. This approach works: The Access Project's students are four times more likely than young people like them, who aren't receiving support, to reach a top university.
