The Insurance Charities gives vital financial and practical support to past and present employees of the insurance industry, and their dependent relatives.
We can help anyone who has relevant experience working in the insurance industry, in any role in the UK and Ireland, and who may now be facing hardship.
Established over 100 years ago we have helped many thousands of people in an extraordinary variety of way, from helping people hit by natural disasters such as floods; to helping fund essential surgery for children; assisting individuals facing debt through a change in circumstances; helping families facing severe illnesses; paying for essential home alterations and supporting people over the years who need help and on-going assistance.
Expert advice can help people find the right support and direct financial assistance is provided to meet a wide range of needs.
We welcome direct enquiries or applications via a third party such as a company's welfare department or other charitable organisation.
We rely on donations and fundraising from Individuals, Local Institutes and Insurance Companies and Intermediaries.
Insurance Charities Awareness Week 2016 date announced
We are delighted to announce that this year’s Insurance Charities Awareness Week (ICAW) will take place from 20th – 24th June.
The purpose of the week is to spread awareness within the insurance industry of the essential work we do, helping people who have worked in insurance who now need help themselves.
How to get involved:
If you work in insurance, or in HR for an insurance company, and would like to receive an ICAW display box or floor stand (containing two boxes) for your office, reception or canteen, completely free of charge, send your name, email address and company name to:
The ICAW display box consists of branded items for your insurance colleagues to take, enjoy and use. Last year we had some delicious chocolates; pencils; rubbers; and leaflets explaining the work that we do.
We can publicise events you are planning to run during this week, email our marketing team or get in touch via our contact us page.
