Community involvement

Insurance has always had a clear social purpose, helping people bounce back from hard times and build confidence in everyday life. 

At Lloyd’s, we have a long history of working to support the communities around us. Through the Lloyd’s charities and the support of our market, we helped people and communities become more resilient, more sustainable, and more inclusive for over 200 years.

Our purpose centres around getting behind charities, colleagues and businesses that are actively working to make a tangible difference to the lives and prospects for people around the world.

Lloyd’s of London Foundation alongside Lloyd’s Patriotic Fund, Lloyd’s Benevolent Fund and Lloyd’s Tercentenary Research Foundation are central to our charitable activity – together the Lloyd’s charities deliver funding to essential programmes that support employability, social mobility, mental health, climate and disaster avoidance and relief. Our family of charities are not only there when the world needs help, but we’re there to help communities build for the long term and ensure they are equipped to face the challenges the world faces.

We operate in a global market that works together to amplify our charitable activity. At Lloyd’s, we enable skills-based volunteering opportunities for those who are part of our community. Check out our Get Involved page to find out more.

In 2021, our charitable giving initiatives supported nearly 50,000 individuals, providing funding for 60 charities with donations of £1.8m to global community causes.

‘Crowded Space’ school competition

For UN Space week, Lloyd’s partnered with international photographer and science communicator Max Alexander to raise awareness of space sustainability and the role the insurance market plays in promoting it. We invited students from our partner schools in the UK and across our global network to invent ways of capturing this space waste which they could bring to life in whatever way they wanted through creativity and imagination.

Get involved

We have a range of opportunities for the Corporation of Lloyd’s and Lloyd’s market companies to support our community involvement initiatives.
