The barriers between state and independent schools, education and enterprise, and advantage and disadvantage can all be overcome if partnerships are built in the right way.
— Richard Garrett, BECSLink Founder




A fragmented, under-resourced and fragile education sector reflects the state of society.

Current social mobility initiatives aimed at young people can be inefficient, unsustainable and not as impactful as they might be.

Social inequality is only likely to increase if young people are not better prepared to adapt to the changing world they will live in.


Humans have never been better connected - it is our capacity to collaborate which drives social progress.

Increased connectivity will lead to greater accountability and, in the age of the conscious consumer, a commercial advantage for those businesses which most clearly demonstrate their genuine social responsibility.

Given the right incentives, we can all profit from doing good.

There is a lot happening between the independent and state sectors, and we are keen to encourage more. I am always struck by how keen businesses and charities are to work with schools, but often they do not know how to do so in an efficient way, and that is why BECSLink can be so useful. BECSLink Communities will enable that to happen
