Zurich is committed to be a good corporate citizen, and in doing so to encourage and support its employees to do their part to make a better world. Zurich delivers its community involvement programme through the Zurich Community Trust (UK) Ltd, a registered charity which is funded by an annual donation from the Zurich UK businesses and by generous donations from Zurich's UK employees. Since its inception in 1973, the Trust has donated over £65 million. Last year we delivered £2.8 million of charitable activities and, through the full range of our programmes, improved the quality of life of over 100,000 disadvantaged people.
The Trust works in partnership with a wide range of charitable organisations - addressing a diverse mix of social issues in the UK and overseas to improve the quality of life for disadvantaged people. The Trust also brokers a wide range of volunteering opportunities for Zurich UK employees engaging over 40% of the Zurich UK workforce in sharing their times and skills with the community each year.
