Volunteering opportunities

Giving back to your community

Did you know at Aviva, (UK) employees get paid volunteering leave? That’s 21 hours, or 3 days, every single year for you to make a difference in your community. Through the Aviva Community Fund, we’d love to connect you and/or your team with local causes to help build #StrongerCommunities.

Whether it’s pulling on your wellies to plant trees, packaging up parcels at a local food bank, or using your skills to support a charity remotely with online tasks – there’s a range of opportunities available to help projects taking part in the Aviva Community Fund.

Take a look at some of the volunteer opportunities currently available below.
