The Nascence Project is Bristol Sport Foundation’s unique business and community engagement programme which works in partnership with others to have the greatest social impact in the communities of Greater Bristol. 

The partnership between Hargreaves Lansdown and Bristol Sport Foundation, which has been ongoing for the last two years, has already helped a significant amount of young people throughout Greater Bristol through joint initiatives such as our Reading Recovery programme, Active Healthy Happy Holiday Camps, Bristol Bears Community Foundation’s Bright Sparks programme and the annual Break The Cycle fundraiser. We are looking forward to seeing what the next stage in this journey will produce.

Paul Glanville, Corporate Partnerships Manager at Bristol Sport Foundation, shared his thoughts on the continuing partnership ‘Hargreaves Lansdown and Bristol Sport Foundation are united in their desire to engage and inspire our community, to make a positive difference to those often living in disadvantage. We are most grateful to Hargreaves Lansdown for extending our Nascence Partnership for a third year, we can’t wait to continue working together in the new year.  Please contact me to find out how we can develop an impactful corporate-charity partnership in 2021. You would be combining forces and aligning with other great Bristol based businesses. Working together we can make a big difference’

Heather Cooper, Chief People Officer at Hargreaves Lansdown, spoke of her excitement at renewing the Nascence partnership “We’re delighted to be able to partner with Bristol Sport Foundation again. It is so important for us to support Bristol as city where everyone can thrive. Now more than ever, it is crucial that we can support our community as much as possible and help ensure that inequalities aren’t exacerbated. By ensuring children have the right start in life is of vital importance so we are proud to be able to provide volunteers to help children with their literacy as it is such an important building block for future resilience.”

The team at Hargreaves Lansdown are also back this week delivering our virtual Reading Recovery Programme to vulnerable children and the children of key workers at St Peter’s Primary school. Reading Recovery is a key part of our Nascence programme and focusses on improving reading and literacy levels amongst primary school children in Greater Bristol. 

What is Nascence

Nascence. (noun) is the development of something new, or the emerging of great potential.

Designing a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Employee Wellbeing strategy that aligns with your business goals, engages your employees and has a positive impact on your employees and the communities they work in is hard, even more so in the ever-changing world in which we live in.

The Nascence Project is a turn-key solution that helps you to deliver data driven impact and value by working in partnership with others to have the greatest impact on the communities of greater Bristol. 

Using Sport as a catalyst, Nascence aims to engage our community, make a positive difference, inspire systemic behaviour change and positively impact long term health outcomes.

The purpose of the Nascence Project is to support our partners to deliver your CSR and Employee Wellbeing strategies through focusing on the four pillars:

  1. Employee Engagement
  2. Employee Wellbeing
  3. Building a Positive Workplace Culture
  4. Social Mobility
