Our charitable Foundations
Our four independent charitable Foundations are fundamental to tackling social disadvantage and helping Britain prosper.
Our four Foundations partner with hundreds of small charities in communities all over the UK and Channel Islands to help people overcome social issues such as addiction, domestic abuse and homelessness and to rebuild their lives.
Through grants, our Foundations focus on giving charities the funding they need to provide vital local services. As well as providing funding, our Foundations combine local knowledge and expertise to help charities to become more effective and financially sustainable. Our colleagues also offer practical support to the Foundations and their charities through skills based volunteering programmes and sharing digital resources.
These same issues can affect our customers and colleagues and the Foundations share insights, expertise and best practice with us to help inform our customer and colleague products and propositions.
Working with incredible charities to make a difference.
In 2023 we partnered with Crisis, a UK homelessness charity which works with thousands of homeless people every year, offering help so they can rebuild their lives and are supported out of homelessness for good.
Working with communities
We’re an integral part of communities across the UK.
Digital impact and inclusion
We’ve long been an advocate of digital skills and inclusion in the UK. This has been done by; influencing through the Lloyds Bank Consumer and Business Digital Indexes to provide market-leading insight, supporting colleagues with their own skills development and external programs.
Our volunteering programme encourages colleagues to spend at least eight hours per year volunteering for a charity, school or community project of their choice.
Our position at the heart of the UK gives our colleagues an unique opportunity to volunteer in their own communities. By sharing their skills, experience and time to help communities to grow and thrive.
We’re focused on 6 priority areas: customer vulnerability; financial education; sustainability; financial capability; education and young people; and employability.
Resources for young people
Ensuring our communities and customers are saving for their futures is not just about providing them with products. It's about helping to create healthy financial habits at an early age, proactively influencing their approach to managing money, and helping them avoid financial difficulty in the future.
To meet this need, we've launched a new suite of financial capability resources. These superb new interactive tools are designed to be the UK’s most exciting, engaging and informative way of helping children and young people understand money and financial management.
