Young people are under greater stress than ever before; many end up having little hope for their future. They are leaving school without the skills or self-belief they need to make their way in the world.

Are you a DHL employee based in the UK? With your help we can deliver a better future for these young people. Working hand in hand with you and the DHL businesses, the DHL UK Foundation funds activities and programmes which help children and young people achieve their full potential.

The Foundation is an independent charity, founded in 1988, and encourages all DHL employees to get involved in the communities in which they live and work, through fundraising and volunteering.

The DHL UK Foundation is about making a difference to people’s lives; the lives of those receiving help and lives of those giving it. You can deliver a better future.
