The ICAEW SW represents Chartered Accountants in the region, providing events and training to connect and support our members.
Run by a committee of volunteers, this year's President of the committee is Ros Aala. Ros has chosen the theme of Social Mobility as a focus for the year, based on his own life experience. As such, we have chosen the Plymouth Drake Foundation's project Plymouth Children in Poverty as the beneficiary of our annual fundraising activities.
Plymouth Children in Poverty (PCiP), is all about eradicating poverty in the city. A massive ask, especially when you consider there are currently 11,000 children living in poverty in Plymouth. The Plymouth Fairness Commission report described a “Tale of Two Cities” whereby a child’s life outcomes were wholly predictable depending on the ward they were born into. Today, some wards continue to experience children in poverty levels in excess of 35%. This cannot be right.
PCiP was born out of a want and need for collaboration and encouragement of our private sector to work more closely with the public sector and charitable organisations – sharing responsibility to rid child poverty from our city.
Our fundraising efforts over the year will be part of this collaboration between business and community.
