IICF Week of Giving
9 October 2021 – 16 October 2021
IICF is continuing to support local communities through our second industry-wide campaign, the IICF UK Covid-19 Revitalising Communities Fund.
Having received a tremendous amount of support from our initial industry-wide campaign, which raised over £105,000 and helped over 3,250 individuals and families, we recognise that recovery from this pandemic is going to take time, is not going to be easy and brings new challenges to our local communities. One such issue is digital exclusion, making it more difficult to complete online schoolwork, apply for jobs, manage money on-line, and access vital services. Digital exclusion is not a standalone issue and is often correlated with food poverty; with people being forced to choose between food for the week and internet access.
Make a personal or company donation through the IICF UK COVID-19 Revitalising Communities Fund and make a real difference to people in need.
Kieran Jones at Weightmans and Dawn Miller at Chubb Insurance recently shared their insights into ways in which the Insurance industry can attract diverse talent and build socially inclusive cultures – to realise the industry’s potential to do social good and improve social mobility in communities across the country. Kieran conveyed “Collaboration is truly key – we find that there is strength in numbers and working with the IICF means that the range of beneficiaries we can reach in respect of the digital divide and social poverty is far greater than any one organisation can reach on their own.” Read the full articles in Insurance Post and Insider Edge, respectively
