Habitat for Humanity
Supporting communities to become resilient against climate disaster
The Lloyd’s of London Foundation is proud to support Habitat for Humanity’s project in Addis Abada, Ethiopia, which is supporting the community to become more resilient against flood risk through smart drainage solutions, hygiene training and resilience education.
Find out more about how Habitat for Humanity Malawi, with funding from Lloyd’s, has supported communities in flood-prone regions to improve their resilience to the inevitable impact of more rainfall and flooding.
“Extreme weather events, which are becoming more frequent and intense due to climate change, have led to a significant increase in floods across Ethiopia. Communities living in urban areas, who are also challenged by limited access to water and sanitation facilities, are particularly vulnerable.Tum Kazunga - CEO, Habitat for Humanity GB
We are proud to partner with Lloyd’s of London Foundation to help communities better protect themselves against these risks. Support from the Foundation is enabling us to construct high-quality sewerage infrastructure, improve water, sanitation, and hygiene practices of families, and to develop a participatory flood risk map that will further strengthen the community resilience against flood risks.”

RFEA - The Forces Employment Charity
Supporting military spouses into employment
Lloyd’s Patriotic Fund is proud to support the Families Employment Advisory programme which gives spouses and families of serving and ex-service personnel guidance and resources to find routes into employment.
“The RFEA Families Programme for spouses and partners has made a significant difference to so many partners who have felt empowered, gained in confidence, and of course landed some super jobs. This has huge benefits for them, for employers who can harness this incredible talent pool, and helps the retention of those still serving. LPF’s support has been pivotal to the programme’s success.”Alistair Halliday- CEO, RFEA
Using sensory modulation to take care for veterans’ mental health
Lloyd’s Patriotic Fund has supported Combat Stress’ groundbreaking new national pilot in sensory modulation - a practice used by occupational therapists to help individuals suffering from mental health conditions understand their senses and coping strategies to ground and calm them.
The research will be published in early 2023 and has already been adopted by psychotherapists treating veterans nationwide.
“We are incredibly grateful to Lloyd’s Patriotic Fund for understanding our vision for how we can use sensory modulation in occupational therapy to support veterans living with trauma-related mental health problems. From funding our pilot back in 2018 to enabling us to research and create an evidence base for this work, Lloyd’s Patriotic Fund has helped us to become thought leaders in this area and pave the way for other organisations to weave this unique intervention into their occupational therapy service.”Christie Alken - Lead Research Occupational Therapist, Combat Stress

Providing emotional, education and employment support for young people who are homeless
Lloyd’s supports Centrepoint’s education and employment programme, alongside their Psychologically Informed Environment (PIE) work. PIE’s ultimate ambition is to have a positive impact on the wellbeing of vulnerable young people experiencing homelessness, and aims to achieve this most broadly by improving how staff are able to understand young people’s needs and in turn, support them accordingly. The project also aims to improve wellbeing and outlook, by ensuring the spaces in which young people reside are welcoming, calming and homely.
“Centrepoint work tirelessly to enable young people aged 16-25 to move on from the devastating impact of homelessness. The young people Centrepoint support have been disproportionately affected by the Coronavirus pandemic including loss of employment and deterioration of mental health.Julie Milnes - Director of Fundraising, Centrepoint

Supporting families through childhood education
Lloyd’s supports Project Ankur, an initiative which focusses on early childhood care and education to advance the potential of young children living in slum communities to transition from pre-school to primary school.
“I have two children who attended the centre – Diksha and Arya. Both of them did not enjoy being away from home and cried till they were let off in the afternoon. I was scared that they would fall behind and I did not know how to help them.Archana Kadam - Mother of Dikha and Arya from Haji Ismail Balwadi Centre
With the support of Project Ankur, not only were my children engaged in daily activities, but the project team also worked with parents like me to help me understand how to create healthy habits as well as a learning environment at home.
