Backing the clever ideas that move communities forward

It takes building a more sustainable future
– for our people and our planet

What makes a community? It’s the people. People who care. People with ideas. People who take the time to look out for one another and look after the places in which they live.

By getting behind small charities and community causes that are taking action in the face of climate change and helping people to take control of their financial wellbeing, we’re building stronger, more supportive communities all across the UK.

The causes we’ve seen make the biggest impact are those that have the freedom to test innovative ideas and explore exciting new opportunities without fear of risk. Ideas like recycling ocean plastic or breaking down barriers to work. That’s why the Aviva Community Fund puts its weight behind these kind of clever ideas through funding, coaching, volunteering and practical guidance.

The causes we're passionate about

We open the door to communities and causes all over the UK to share their vision on how to make our world a better place. Our eyes are currently fixed on these two areas:

  • Climate action– promoting healthy, thriving communities by preventing, preparing for and protecting against the impacts of climate change
  • Financial wellbeing– helping people take control of their wellbeing by giving them the tools to be more financially independent and ready for anything.

Pulling in all our resources to push communities forward

Beyond the funding of forward-thinking ideas, we also want to connect all charities with people and resources that can help them thrive. In particular, we’re focused on sharing the experience, skills and enthusiasm within Aviva, to support all charities through free online resources, networking forums, and volunteering. Working together, we can build stronger communities and have a positive impact across the UK.
