Sustainable development

Virgin Atlantic Foundation, a UK registered charity, was set up in 2003 and was created to support the welfare of children and young people through funds raised from Virgin Atlantic’s community investment programme.

In 2010 we partnered with WE, a movement that brings people together and gives them the tools to change the world. The partnership has been more successful than the we could ever have hoped for. WE has been capturing the hearts and minds of Virgin Atlantic staff since the partnership began. In fact, it has inspired Virgin Atlantic employees, partners and customers to raise over £4.5 million for projects at home and overseas.

A word from Richard Branson;

“I’m so proud of the partnership Virgin Atlantic has with WE. I have visited their international development projects and they are remarkable. Their UK schools-based programme is also a pioneering initiative where they are providing young people with skills to become social and environmental entrepreneurs.”
