Launched in 2014, 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.

The Paired Peers study – led by researchers at Bristol University and the University of the West of England – found that wealthier students were ‘far more able to draw upon family resources and had access to influential social networks’ to help get work experience or internships during their degree.   

Through the Foundation, Debrett’s sponsors high achieving students who have been nominated by their school and selected to attend the Debrett’s Academy. The Academy delivers training in areas such as interviews and networking to help provide the skills and confidence to network and gain work experience. Students also benefit from access to the powerful Debrett’s Network, providing opportunities for work experience, internships and mentoring within the business areas they are considering for their future careers.
