We believe that by working with the right organisations we can help communities and individuals become more resilient and bring about positive change.

Global charities

Our chosen international emergency partner for employee donations is the Disaster Emergency Committee. We will respond by offering an immediate one-off payroll giving facility through which employees can make a tax-efficient donation to the disaster appeal.

National charities

Our corporate charity in the UK is the children’s charity Barnardo’s, who are dedicated to help improve the lives of children, young people and their families.

Our employees run, walk, cycle, bake and do a variety of activities to help raise valuable funds for our charity partner – and then Allianz matches the donation.

Young people facing disadvantage have experienced huge employment challenges through the pandemic, which has been further exacerbated by the current cost-of-living crisis. Today, over 300,000 young people in the UK do not have basic digital skills and 770,000 young people aged 16 – 24 are classed as NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training); unable to get a job; or are trapped in an unbreakable cycle of disadvantage, isolation and poor mental health. With the right support and opportunities to excel, these children can develop and build long-term careers. Together we will enable thousands of young people, classed as NEET to live, learn and work.

From 2019 to 2023, we had a great partnership with the mental health charity Mind and their sister charity in Scotland, SAMH.

Over the five years partnership, we raised £1.4m to support Mind’s work across the UK to develop greater mental health support services to help children and young people to build resilience.

It is a little-known fact that 3 children in every classroom in the UK have a mental health problem such as depression, eating disorders and anxiety and over half of adult mental health issues have started by age 14, with 75% by age 18. Our partnership aimed to address these problems early and build awareness and support of young people from today.

Allianz has a long term commitment to the global Paralympic movement and we are also proud to support the British Paralympic Association (BPA). As well as managing ParalympicsGB, the BPA’s charitable activity champions grass roots para sport for children, young people and adults with disabilities.
The Petplan Charitable Trust (Registered Charity No.1032907) is funded by donations from Petplan’s customers. The Trust aims to promote the health and welfare of the nation’s animals, and awards funding to a host of well-deserved causes both in the UK and abroad. This includes everything from research into new life-saving treatments for animals, to donations for animal rehoming charities which help them to continue giving pets a new start in life.

We encourage all our employees to contribute their time, skills and passion to their local communities. We believe volunteering is a great way for employees to develop communication and leadership skills as well as building relationships within teams.

Our employees take pride in supporting their local communities and they tell us that it’s one of the things that make Allianz a great place to work.

All of our employees are entitled to 20 hours paid leave per year to volunteer in their local community every year.

Volunteering in action

We regularly volunteer in communities local to our offices and support a broad range of charities and causes.

Here are some of our people working hard to help the RSPB to preserve an area of heathland not far from our Guildford office.
