Lloyd’s of London Foundation


What we do

Founded and funded by Lloyd’s of London, we are a funding Foundation that works with charity and community partners in the UK and globally. Our strategic charity partnerships focus on two areas – social mobility through education and disaster recovery and resilience. We also provide funding to a number of charities that are important to those working at Lloyd’s and in the wider Lloyd’s market.

Lloyd’s is the world’s leading insurance marketplace helping people bounce back from hard times, and for over 300 years we have helped support the communities around us through our global philanthropic projects.

The mission of the Foundation is to deliver long-term, meaningful social impact that engages stakeholders and leverages Lloyd’s unique convening position.
