Demonstrating our impact: Impact report 2023

A crucial part of the work of The Access Project involves understanding the impact we are making on the lives of our students. We work to improve the quality of our programmes by evaluating their impact on our students as well as their relevance in the wider context of social mobility and widening participation in the UK.

Our impact report is more than just numbers and statistics; it’s a reflection of the real, positive change we bring to the lives of our incredible students.  Through meticulously gathered data and heartfelt testimonials, our 2023 Impact report showcases the transformative outcomes of our educational programmes. It not only serves as a testament to the dedication of our staff and volunteers but each report also enables us to continually refine and improve our approach, ensuring that we deliver the most effective support to our students.

In addition, the Impact report provides us with an opportunity to say a big thank you to our supporters, without whom The Access Project simply could not exist.
