Social Mobility Advisory Group report:
“We welcome the publication of the final report of the Social Mobility Advisory Group. We have been vocal for many years about the need for greater collaboration within the sector to improve the impact of widening participation initiatives. FACE is well placed to help deliver on the recommendation from this report, as an established leader in sharing practitioner research and best practice on impact. We look forward to playing a significant role in helping to meet the aspirations of the Social Mobility Advisory Group”
