We protect what matters – you and the world we share. Contributing to a healthier, inclusive and sustainable future for us all, is embedded in our purpose and everything we do.

Here are just a few examples of how we work to protect what matters…

Promote Good Health

We use our expertise and partnerships to help improve the health and wellbeing of those that work with us, you and your loved ones.

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.

Progress in Society

We invest in education to help people thrive. We empower our people to make a difference in their communities because together we can make a bigger difference in society.

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 million donation has helped accelerate the efforts of the initiative, which as of September 2020, has achieved over 2,000 matches since its launch.

Volunteer programme stories

Hearts in Action

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

The last year has seen exceptional levels of activity in the UK, with more than half of our employees getting involved in just under 100 Hearts in Action events for around 50 charity partners.

Community Grant Scheme

36 charities across six regions up and down the country have benefited from £2,000 to support them during these challenging times. Our employees nominate local charities they would like to receive a donation to ensure that we can help, where is really matters.

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.

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.

Delivering impact and making a difference

Driverless cars

We can all agree that our cities could be safer, more accessible and efficient. That’s why we’re helping to develop autonomous vehicles and working with the government to shape laws ready to embrace them.

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.
