Our latest insights

We are fortunate to live in a time when the imperative to act responsibly is increasingly keenly felt by businesses throughout the world. I very much want Capita to play a leading role in this movement, and to demonstrate that it is only through responsible commercial practice that truly better outcomes can be achieved – for today, for tomorrow and for generations to come.

Delivering social value with our clients

We’re helping budding social entrepreneurs in the London Borough of Lambeth to develop their ideas into commercial propositions.

We partnered with Lambeth Council and the School for Social Entrepreneurs to run the Igniting Change programme, which supported 20 residents to grow and develop their project ideas through seven action-based workshops.

The video gives a snapshot of some of the projects - covering everything from tackling inclusion, through to ensuring neuro-diverse young people have the help they need to succeed at school, supporting job-seekers to get experience and skills through volunteering, and raising educational attainment for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
