Growing Together in the community is Grant Thornton's commitment to community engagement.

Founded on six guiding principles, it advocates the impact each person can make by being passionately involved in their community. Many inspiring people from Grant Thornton across the globe are already providing innovative, generous and resourceful services to the communities they work and live in, see the videos below for examples of how our people are making a difference.

One thread recurs through all our work with communities – helping young people to unlock their potential through education. Across many of our member firms, our people are using their skills and experience to help young people to thrive.

Together they developed the global guiding principles which shape our community engagement. The committee currently comprises representatives from Mexico, US, Ireland, UK, South Africa, India, UAE and Australia.
