General Insurance Article - Aviva pledge 5m pounds to NHS Charities Together


Aviva has pledged £5 million to NHS Charities Together as part of a package of measures aimed at supporting customers and their communities during the Covid-19 crisis.

 Aviva’s donation will fund support for the NHS in three key areas: welfare and wellbeing for NHS employees, volunteers and patients; assistance for patients leaving hospital; and long-term mental health support for NHS workers.

 Aviva’s package of measures to support customers and communities also includes:
 • Free breakdown cover, enhanced home insurance for personal belongings and free courtesy cars for Aviva customers working in the NHS. It will also prioritise repairs for NHS workers who are Aviva motor insurance customers.
 • Full pay for Aviva employees who volunteer full time for the NHS and British Red Cross.
 • Support for Aviva direct, Quotemehappy or General Accident home, motor and personal van customers who may be experiencing severe financial difficulties as a result of Covid-19, by deferring their monthly payments and spreading payments over the remaining term of their policies.
 • A donation of £10 million to the British Red Cross, to support those coming out of hospital and ensuring those made most vulnerable by the outbreak can get the right support at the right time.
 • Donations from surplus stock of hand sanitizers, rubber gloves, antiseptic wipe pod refills and face masks to key worker organisations and charities.

 Colm Holmes, Global CEO, General Insurance at Aviva plc said: “We are seeing extraordinary efforts, particularly from NHS workers who are on the front line helping to keep us safe in the global fight against Covid-19. But we all have a part to play in defeating the virus. The funding for NHS Charities Together will help provide vital support to NHS workers, patients and communities and ensure that support reaches more people, quickly.”

 Ellie Orton, CEO of NHS Charities Together, said: “We have pledged to raise £100 million to help support NHS workers throughout the Coronavirus crisis. Aviva’s donation will make a real difference to the amazing NHS staff, volunteers and patients who are on the front line. It’s important that these individuals know just how much the nation appreciates their efforts, and actions such as this show how much people care.”
