Our current programmes

Since 2004, we've created business and community partnerships that have developed skills, created jobs and widened opportunity for tens of thousands of people.


We do this through tailored partnership programmes which bring together the energy and expertise of business and communities to meet local needs

Through Goldman Sachs’ 10,000 Small Businesses which we helped launch in the UK in 2010, over 900 growing business leaders have completed in-depth training and received tailored support, with 88% of the participants growing their revenue.

Our education business activities support over 30,000 students every year, helping young people to make better career choices and develop the skills that will make them successful.
