Lloyd's Community Programme

Building a stronger local community through volunteering in east London.

Get Involved

Lloyd's Community Programme volunteers help to build a stronger local community by getting involved in projects in east London. In 2015, we want to match the success of previous years and work with people across the Lloyd's market to share their skills and enthusiasm.

Volunteering can range from an hour a week to just one day and is hugely rewarding for all involved. Over 45 managing agents and brokers in the Lloyd's market are supporters of Lloyd's Community Programme. If you are interested, have a look at our four focus areas to find out which volunteer opportunity is right for you.
