Community Impact Report - MK College

Together we Build
Fairer Futures

In order to Build Fairer Futures, we think it is important to celebrate our successes but also identify areas where we can still do more to make a difference. I would like to thank our learners, colleagues and all partners for their support in driving positive change in our communities. Please take a look at this year’s Community Impact Report – we hope you find it insightful and helpful.

The College in the Community Day came about as we wanted to support our local Milton Keynes communities who we know are struggling with a range of issues, which have of course been exacerbated by the cost-of-living crisis. And we wanted our students to have the opportunity to use the skills they’re developing with us out in their local communities. To learn more about the event click here.
