Our Funding Priorities

We believe that insurance plays a valuable role in creating a more confident and secure world and that our charitable funding should extend this role.

Mindful of Lloyd’s position as the world’s leading specialist insurance market, and given the market’s role in covering global risks including natural disasters, Lloyd’s Charities Trust aims to help the communities most at risk from disasters and emergencies in the following ways:

  • We give to charities responding to disasters and emergencies, to help relieve suffering and rebuild lives.
  • In areas prone to natural disasters we fund disaster risk reduction initiatives which aim to build resilience.

As one of London’s leading financial markets and a major employer and contributor to the economy, Lloyd’s Charities Trust focuses some of our giving locally, to improve economic prospects, community and quality of life:

  • To spread the economic and social benefits of the Lloyd’s London market, we support projects that tackle disadvantage and foster opportunity.
  • We support colleagues in the Lloyd’s London market in their individual and collective charitable efforts by making donations to their chosen causes through the Lloyd’s Market Charity Awards.
