The Social Business Trust renews partnership with The Brilliant Club

We are thrilled to announce that the Social Business Trust (SBT) has renewed our partnership with The Brilliant Club until the end of 2026.

The Brilliant Club supports students aged 8 to 18 from less advantaged backgrounds to access the most competitive universities, and succeed when they get there. They do this by partnering with schools, colleges and universities across the UK, with a particular focus on mobilising the PhD community.

SBT has partnered with The Brilliant Club since 2018, with support including access to world-class expertise from Bain & Company which has underpinned the charity’s five-year strategy. During this time, The Brilliant Club has delivered its flagship access programmes to students across the UK as well as launching new programmes, such as Join the Dots and Parent Power. We are looking forward to seeing our partnership with The Brilliant Club develop further and to continue helping them to support so many exceptional young people.

Joanne Hay, CEO, Social Business Trust commented:

 “We are very pleased to be renewing our partnership with The Brilliant Club. Over the past six years we have seen the organisation grow, adapt and flourish. We are so proud to have been part of their success and look forward to helping The Brilliant Club further grow their impact and achieve even more for the young people they support.

Anne-Marie Canning, CEO, The Brilliant Club commented:

“Our partnership with Social Business Trust has been fundamental in both the creation and in the delivery of our five-year strategy. We are delighted that the relationship will continue as we support 100,000 young people between 2021-26 to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to thrive in academia, higher education and beyond.”

Florian Braun, SBT Investment Director and Partner, Bain commented:

“It has been a great honour to support The Brilliant Club as Investment Director during its first phase of partnership with Social Business Trust and to see the strategy bringing great initial results. I am delighted that The Brilliant Club and Social Business Trust will continue the relationship as they accelerate the support of young people to access and succeed in their higher education.
