The Insurance Charities Awareness Week - A lifeline for the insurance industry


The Insurance Charities Awareness Week will take place between the 17th and 21st June this year.

The aim is to let the industry know about the Charity, and the support available in times of need.

If your organisation has signed up, you’ll hopefully spot boxes of giveaways in your office during the week.

This year the Charity has partnered with Harry Specter’s Chocolates - an initiative dedicated to crafting chocolates to create employment for young people with autism.

You can follow the week on Twitter using #ICAW and run activities to coincide with the week such as a bake sale, dress-down day or team quiz.

Other ways you can support The Insurance Charities:

  • Sign up to receive their quarterly newsletter via the sign-up box at the bottom of their homepage.
  • From just £15 a year you can support them by becoming a member and help them to help others.
  • Think about a colleague or someone in your professional network that may need support and share the charity’s details with them.

If you have any questions you can call 020 7606 3763 or email
