Head Coaches

AXA is the official training kit partner of Liverpool FC. As part of our partnership we launched AXA Head Coaches initiative, training LFC Foundation staff as Youth Mental Health First Aid Champions, so they have a greater knowledge of common mental health issues and how they can affect the young people they work with.

Business in the Community

During these uncertain times, it’s vital that communities receive much needed support from businesses who have the resources to help. In April 2020, we partnered with Business in the Community to found the National Business Response Network, helping match communities in need of help with businesses that can offer support.

The National Business Response Network connects national and local community groups, businesses, local authorities and charities needing help in providing food, medicine or community services with business offers of help. Our £1.5 million donation has helped accelerate the efforts of the initiative, which as of September 2020, has achieved over 3,500 matches since its launch.

Hearts in Action

Hearts in Action is AXA’s global volunteer programme which builds links between our business, our people and our local communities.

Over the last year, AXA employees have been supporting dozens of community organisations, primarily through our strategic partners as they have battled to maintain their services throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Apprentice programme

It's important that we give our enthusiastic talent the opportunity to develop the career they want. That’s why we offer apprenticeships to our people to give them the skills and experience they need to be leaders of the future.

Charity fundraising

We are proud to work closely with a number of community and charity partners who give us the opportunity to use our business as a force for good. We share many common values with these charities, putting those we support at the heart of our thinking, volunteering and fundraising.

Our employees voted for Alzheimer’s Society and FareShare to be our chosen charities for three years. A long-term partnership allows us to build stronger relationships and make a real difference.

Protect Our Planet

We look to understand the risks of an ever-changing climate and seek to make positive change to help make a bigger difference to the world we share.

Being a force for good

We use our collective energy to contribute to a healthier, more inclusive and more sustainable future for everyone. To help us do this and move the world forward, we believe in setting stretching sustainability targets, and we have done for many years. Our latest set of targets focussed on emissions from power, business travel, paper and waste management.

Climate change

We’re fully committed to the global effort to limit climate change, as part of our mission to help people live better lives. We fund research and monitoring - to help understand it, and support campaigns and actions - to help slow it down.
