Zurich Community Trust (UK) Limited (ZCT) is the community arm of Zurich Insurance in the UK and is a registered charity in its own right. Founded in 1973, we work in partnership with a wide range of charitable organisations, addressing a diverse mix of social issues in the UK and overseas.

Each year we award around £2 million of grants through our grant programmes which - supported by employee volunteering - help to improve the quality of life of over 100,000 disadvantaged people every year. 

ZCT is funded half by the Zurich UK business and half by Zurich employees' generous donations whether through regular giving, such as Give As You Earn (payroll giving), or one-off fundraising events covering everything from cake bakes, running, cycling, swimming to skydiving! 

We are proud to support a wide range of local, national and overseas charities, many of whom are chosen by Zurich's employees. Our current two national charity partners, selected by employees, are Dementia UK and Place2Be.

'Zurich Cares' is the name of Zurich's employee involvement programme which manages the valued donations of employees' time, money and skills. Zurich Cares has an award winning volunteering programme and supports a wide range of national and local charities as well as UK based charities working overseas.

The Openwork Foundation is funded by the staff and self employed Advisers of Openwork Ltd. It is a fundraising and grant giving Foundation and under its theme of Cares 4 Kids, supports Young Carers through its national partner, Carers Trust, and many local and overseas organisations.

Key facts:

  • Over £80 million donated in grants since 1973
  • Over 600 charities supported each year
  • Zurich employees raise over £400,000 each year
