Insurance Charities Awareness Week – How will you get involved?

The Insurance Charities wants to ensure no current or former insurance employee who is struggling due to misfortune misses out on the support it can offer.

We have all experienced a rise in cost of living, so the Charity’s support may be needed now more than ever. We hope that you and your employer will get involved and help spread the word during the dedicated campaign week which will run from 24-28 June.

The Charity will be issuing a digital Supporter Toolkit ahead of the week (late May/early June) packed with resources and guidance to help you participate, so please keep an eye out for that.

Ways to support the campaign

  • Talk to your colleagues about the Charity. It doesn’t need to be formal perhaps over a cup of tea or at the end of a meeting.
  • Order free giveaways to share with colleagues working in insurance ahead of the week.
  • Retweet and share the Charity’s social media posts using the hashtag #ICAW.
  • You can also share your own posts from your personal social media accounts and company/ accounts (where feasible).
  • Think of those in your insurance networks who are struggling financially and signpost them to the Charity.
  • Circulate the resources The Insurance Charities will be sharing in advance. Perhaps consider including the content in your team meetings, on your intranet, or in staff wellbeing sessions.
  • Request a short online presentation from one the Insurance Charities team.

Please put the dates in your diary, and look out for further updates on Twitter and LinkedIn, the dedicated campaign webpage, and awareness week bulletins as they become available. If you’ve not signed up for the Charity’s ebulletins you can do so at the bottom of its homepage.
