The Social Mobility Foundation (SMF) is a charity which aims to make a practical improvement in social mobility for young people from low-income backgrounds. The SMF was founded in 2005 by Linkson Jack in order to provide opportunities and networks of support for 16-17 year old who are unable to get them from their schools or families. More than ten years on, the first students supported by SMF have gone on to be successful in achieving degrees and graduate entry jobs. As well as extending support to students throughout university across our 11 career sectors (Accountancy, Architecture, Banking & Finance, Biology & Chemistry, Business, Engineering & Physics, Law, Media & Communications, Medicine, Politics, and Technology) we now run programmes to support young people wherever they live in the UK.
With Macc Care working with SMF to provide a short one week internships, we will be supporting a high-achieving young person who is passionate about gaining a real insight into Social & Health Care Sector from our experienced professionals within our care homes.
Macc Care is proud to be in association with SMF which allows our contribution to SMF students’ own development and their professional development as well. As an organisation, this enables us to further develop and enable the communities we are based in and promote good person centred core within the Care Home Sector.
