Our impact

Every year we report on the progress we’ve made and how we’ve achieved what we set out to.
Our annual impact reports highlight the progress we've made toward our strategic objectives, and outline where we're going to focus our work over the following years to achieve our vision of a fairer society where everyone can fulfil their potential.
