Young people who have benefitted from the Accessing the Future (ATF) fund had their achievements celebrated at an awards event at Credit Suisse’s Canary Wharf HQ on 16 November. Credit Suisse have supported ATF through the Credit Suisse EMEA Foundation since 2016.
The ATF fund offers support to disadvantaged young people who are held back from achieving their career goals by financial constraints. The fund helps with practical issues such as college fees, travel expenses, uniforms and work-related equipment.
Three exceptional young people who have benefitted from ATF were presented with awards at the evening event. Over 100 young people have been helped through ATF in its first year and have pursued a varied range of careers, from setting up a music studio to training as a lifeguard. For them, the ATF fund has given them a life-changing stepping stone.
