At Royal London, our Social Impact work is how we help drive meaningful change for wider society, on our purpose impact areas of helping build financial resilience, and moving fairly to a sustainable world.
We support those in financial crisis through our flagship partnership, accelerate innovation through our Changemakers Programme, and lead the way with our products, services, operations and investments.
Our flagship partnership
We believe that we're stronger when we work together. So we've created our first social impact flagship partnership with national poverty charity Turn2us to help tackle these issues.
This partnership will go beyond volunteering and fundraising to prove the power of true collaboration. It will create opportunities for us to learn, campaign and innovate together, enabling us to reach more people and make a longer-lasting impact.
Our Changemakers programme
In our Changemakers Programme, we’ll be working alongside Year Here and School for Social Entrepreneurs to create, develop and invest in bold ideas and sustainable solutions that will help build people's financial resilience and help us move fairly to a sustainable world.
Each year we’ll support talented individuals to explore society’s challenges and build new solutions. We’ll also help social enterprises with existing innovations scale up and increase their impact.
We know that in the UK over 11 million people have less than £100 savings to fall back on, and over 4-6 million people will face a serious income shock each year. We also know that some individuals, jobs and communities will more negatively impacted by the move to a low carbon economy.
We can't always prevent life shocks of the impacts of societal challenges from climate change or the covid-19 pandemic. But we can help people prepare for them, or manage their impact, by building financial, individual or community resilience and providing tools and support to help them recover.
