IntoUniversity's work with young people has been honoured by Charity Times Awards

October 2011 │ London

IntoUniversity, one of Deutsche Bank’s Corporate Citizenship community partners, has received two separate honours for its work with young people. Chief Executive Dr Rachel Carr won the ‘Charity Principal of the Year’ award at the Charity Times Awards. IntoUniversity was also awarded the Young People Now ‘Learning Award’ for “the initiative that has made the best contribution to improving educational performance”.


The Bank has been working with the charity, which helps disadvantaged young people, for four years, providing financial and volunteering support.

Kate Cavelle, Deutsche Bank's Head of Corporate Citizenship UK, said: "It is a great day when the work of our community partners is recognised and endorsed by other organisations. IntoUniversity has gone from strength to strength during the years of our partnership. We are delighted with their success at the recent Charity Times Awards and the Children and Young People Now Awards."

About IntoUniversity

IntoUniversity aims to address underachievement and social exclusion among young people by offering an integrated programme of out-of-school study, mentoring, aspirational coaching, personal support and, in partnership with universities, specially-devised FOCUS weeks, days and weekends.

IntoUniversity builds relationships with young people at aged seven and continues that support through university access and beyond. It is a centre-based service, offered free of charge, at specialist facilities located in the communities where the client groups live.

Deutsche Bank began a partnership with IntoUniversity in 2007, supporting the set up of their services in North West London. After a successful three-year relationship we extended our support to East London and now invest the time of our employee volunteers, as well as cash, to help the disadvantaged young people supported by IntoUniversity.
