Support for other areas

On a national level, we have committed funding to national partners CLIC Sargent, MIND and Alzheimer's Society, and also share our business skills with them.

We do have smaller local grant budgets around our office locations in Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff, Croydon, London and Manchester, and following a review of our grant programme in these locations, we will no longer have an open application process in the way that we have had before. 

Whilst the overall budgetary commitment to the local voluntary sector in these areas remains exactly the same, Zurich employees have chosen the causes they want to support and we are developing a number of multi year funding arrangements with smaller community and voluntary organisations.  

The charities that we will be supporting over the next three years have been appointed and we will not be looking for new charities to support with funding until 2020.

 

Volunteering

We do run a number of programmes to enable employees to share their time and/or business skills with their local community.  All bring tremendous benefits to the voluntary organisations and the people they work with.  We may be able to help you too, especially with:

  • Annual Challenge - mainly practical one-off projects, which teams of staff can take up. For example, decorating, DIY, day trips or gardening.
