ICAS joins Rise

ICAS is joining an accountancy led social mobility initiative to teach school children essential life skills.

The institute is one of 16 new partners of social mobility initiative Rise, which launched last year to help young people from low socio-economic backgrounds. ICAS Chief Executive, Bruce Cartwright CA, said: “As Chartered Accountants (CAs) and finance professionals, we have a responsibility to pass on our knowledge to those who are in need of it the most. Working with children from schools in areas of low social mobility at this early stage in their lives is vital, and by partnering with the Rise initiative, we can help provide them with the tools and understanding they can use to work towards a successful career and a bright future.” 

The full list of 16 new Rise partners is: AAB; Albert Goodman; Atmo Technology; BPP; Crowe; Dixon Wilson: Duncan & Toplis; First Intuition; Harris+Co; ICAS; Kaplan: Lubbock Fine; Moore Kingston Smith; RSM UK; Saffrey Champness; and Wheelhouse Advisors.
