Supporting local communities

Introduction

We establish long-term relationships with our charity partners to ensure that the projects we support are sustainable, and we work closely with them to continuously improve

As a long-term business, we are committed to supporting the longterm well-being of the communities in which we operate. The social value of our business – helping customers manage uncertainty and build a more secure future, as well as our investments providing long-term capital that finances businesses, builds infrastructure and fosters economic growth – is further underpinned by our community programmes and activities.

Each of Prudential’s businesses has community investment programmes that provide support to charitable organisations through funding and the experience and expertise of our employees.

Last year more than 7,350 employees across the Group gave up their time to help in their communities, using their skills and knowledge to benefit others.

We establish long-term relationships with our charity partners to ensure that the projects we support are sustainable, and we work closely with them to continuously improve.

The diversity of our markets means that our programmes vary from region to region, but a shared focus is education and life skills. These activities include financial education, support to improve social mobility and employee volunteering.
