Introducing SUSTAIN

Impact Hub Bradford is excited to announce the launch of SUSTAIN, a collaboration between ourselves and PwC, to support organisations trying to make a social impact in a post-pandemic world. As vaccination programmes are rolled out to help protect us from COVID-19, we’re determined to support our city’s economic and civic recovery.

Great challenges await, but we know Bradford can rise to these with equally great talent, compassion and determinism. SUSTAIN will support those who are looking to support our collective recovery.
