It has been an award winning year so far for the Lloyd’s Community Programme team and we were delighted to be recognised for our long term partnership with Tower Hamlets Education Business Partnership (THEBP) at the Lord Mayor’s Dragon Awards at Mansion House.
In 1991 Lloyd’s provided seed funding and management support to set up Tower Hamlets EBP in response to a national initiative to forge links between schools and businesses. At the time the focus was on supporting a pilot literacy programme as literacy levels in Tower Hamlets were very low. 25 years on the Reading and Number Partner programme is a flagship initiative for the EBP and over 600 volunteers from across the Lloyd’s market go into schools across Tower Hamlets to support young people with their literacy and numeracy.

The partnership with the EBP has grown over the years and LCP now supports a wider range of programmes: supporting young people in secondary schools and sixth forms with mentors and employability workshops to a pilot programme working with parents and their children in primary schools to promote financial literacy.
