Lloyds Banking Group’s colleague volunteering programme enables colleagues to spend at least one day per year volunteering for a charity or community project of their choice.
We’ve made a commitment in our Helping Britain Prosper Plan to deliver 720,000 hours by the end of 2020.
In 2019 our colleagues delivered over 246,000 volunteering hours.
Over 50% of all Volunteering that took place in 2019 was Skills focused with Volunteers either using their own skills to support charities and community groups or developing the skills of others in those causes.
Skills Based Volunteering (SBV) takes many forms from mentoring to our Digital Champions to Financial Literacy.
