Announcing our partnership with Beam

The Up Group are proud to announce our partnership with Beam, the social enterprise. Beam uses technology to fund employment training for people who have experienced, or are at risk of homelessness. As part of The Up Group’s client satisfaction process, Up will give a donation to a Beam member of the client’s choosing.

 

“Beam is thrilled to partner with The Up Group. Both organisations share a strong conviction that technology is a tool that has huge potential to improve the lives of the most disadvantaged and marginalised people in our communities, including homeless people” Says Alex Stephany, CEO of Beam “Further, we both passionately believe in the huge importance of giving everyone the opportunity to do rewarding work and fulfil their potential”.

 

“Getting clients to give honest feedback to us on our work is an important part of our culture” says Ian Coyne, Chief Growth Officer at The Up Group. “We know this means our clients taking the time out to help us, and we want to say thank you. When Alex shared what was happening at Beam, this felt like a great partnership.” Up are proud to have already raised over £10,000 for Beam members through a silent auction at the Digital Masters Awards in June 2018.
