The Debrett's Foundation

The Debrett’s Foundation is a not-for-profit division of Debrett’s which supports and champions social mobility to ensure that the next generation of leaders are from all walks of life and backgrounds, and to help them become the people of tomorrow. Since its inception in 2014, The Debrett’s Foundation has been providing business etiquette skills such as first impressions, interviewing and networking to over 150 high achievers from British secondary state schools as well as opportunities in mentoring, work experience and further education from our networks of the Debrett’s 500 and People of Today. According to a new social mobility survey carried out for The Debrett’s Foundation, statistics showed that privileged students from private schools were twice as likely to get internships in the capital compared with state-educated students. By donating to the Foundation, you will help promote social mobility in the UK by giving high achieving students from less privileged backgrounds the opportunity to gain the training, confidence and network to make the most of their further education and first jobs.
