Student Beans launches social impact programme

Student Beans (@studentbeans) today announces the launch of its first-ever social impact programme. Having already supported millions of students nationwide with exclusive discounts throughout the years, its new programme will provide tools and opportunities to level the playing field for underrepresented, unsupported or otherwise disadvantaged individuals within the 2.4 million-strong UK student population.

In its commitment to students, Student Beans will use its global brand power to: 

  • Provide students with the support, tools  and opportunities they need to successfully thrive
  • Work to create a more sustainable and equitable future for the generation of tomorrow
  • Commit to providing students with mental health advice and support

Kickstarting the programme, Student Beans today has further announced its official partnership with leading social mobility charity, the 93% Club, as the social enterprise’s first official campaign partner. 

This collaboration will see Student Beans’ student insight used to generate public awareness of social inequality amongst prospective students, helping to accentuate the opportunities available for state-school-educated Brits, which currently make up 93% of the UK population. The exclusive insights will be used to support the charity in streamlining its comms to its 10,000 student members, as well as to co-create resources to unitedly raise awareness of education-based stigmas.

Student Beans will also upskill the team at The 93% Foundation with bespoke workshops and training, to provide valuable information on student living for the foundation’s members.

Mike EderCEO and Co-Founder of Student Beans commented: 

“As a brand at the heart of everyday student life, we’ve developed a deep understanding of the challenges facing students today. We’re proud to join forces with The 93% Foundation as its first campaign partner, where we’ll be using our expertise in student marketing to develop creative campaigns to help break down barriers for students from disadvantaged backgrounds.”

The union with The 93% Foundation is the first official initiative following the announcement of Student Beans’ social impact programme, which will centre around its three CSR pillars: PeopleStudents, and Planet; which are already being driven by existing partnerships with UK-trans charity Not a PhaseSME Climate Commitment,andapprenticeship provider Multiverse.
