Insurance Charities Awareness Week 20-24th June 2022

Fri 10 Jun. 2022

As a newsletter subscriber, we wanted to update you on this year's Awareness Week campaign which is taking place shortly. We want to ensure that no insurance employee in need of our help misses out, so hope that you and your employer will get involved however you can. If you belong to a local insurance network we hope that they can support the campaign too! Our digital Supporter Toolkit is now available to download below. We'd be grateful if you could also share this with your marketing/communications teams or those responsible for your social media. Access the Supporter Toolkit here: https://www.theinsurancecharities.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/Supporter-Toolkit-2022.pdf During the week we'll be asking you and your colleagues to: • Retweet and share our social media posts using the hashtag #ICAW. • Send your own posts from your personal accounts and company accounts (where possible). • Consider sharing information about the Charity in team meetings, on your intranet, or in staff wellbeing sessions. • Watch and share our webinar we'll be launching at the start of the week which will tell you more about the Charity and how we can help. • Share our 2021/2022 impact report we'll be publishing at the close of the campaign. • Think of those in your professional networks who may be struggling and signpost them to us.
