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.

ELBA Community Recovery Programme – Creative Solutions – Capacity Building Workshop

Date: Tuesday 9 November, 9:45am-12:30pm

Location: Online Microsoft Teams

This is a 'problem-solving' session, where community organisations attend with their specific challenges and work with corporate volunteers to tackle these. This session is a chance for community organisations to:

  1. Engage in creative brainstorming regarding organisational sustainability
  2. Assess the viability of possible solutions and evaluate potential impact
  3. Develop the most viable ideas into a list of actions to take away and implement

Volunteers will work in groups with staff from East London-based organisations. They will be taking part in facilitated activities led by ELBA staff, designed to reflect, brainstorm, and find practical solutions that community organisations can take away and implement.

Volunteers do not need to come from any specific business function or team. However strategic planning, reflection, logistical thinking and good communication skills are helpful.

If you would like to get involved, then please contact Leah.Buckingham@lloyds.com
