Corporate Responsibility

Aviva Group Ireland

At Aviva we embrace our responsibilities

Our purpose and values inspire and guide us to care more for our customers, communities and each other and think and act now for the long term to create legacy.

Our National Partner

St Francis Hospice

Since 1989 the staff and volunteers of St Francis Hospice have provided specialist palliative care to the people of north Dublin city and county. Based on a Christian philosophy, the service treats each person with dignity, respect and compassion irrespective of their cultural or religious background.

While we may never wish to avail of the services of St Francis Hospice, for those of us that might need to or indeed have family members that might need to it is a brilliant service and we at Aviva are proud to have St Francis Hospice as our national charity partner for the next two years.

Local Partners

Temple Street Children’s Hospital

We will almost all be familiar with the pioneering work that Temple Street Children’s hospital do for our children and young people. Child-centred, compassionate and progressive, they act with respect, integrity and excellence to provide a most fantastic service for the children of Ireland.

We know that children are our future and that their health is of paramount importance. We look forward to supporting Temple Street over the next two years, to help them continue the great work that they do.

Shine centre for Autism

The Irish Progressive Association for Autism (IPAA) is a Cork based Voluntary Organisation established in September 2001. Since its establishment IPAA/Shine has worked with hundreds of families across Cork city and county to secure assessments, therapies, services and appropriate education for their children.

Our staff in Cork have already a well-established relationship with Shine Centre for Autism and we are excited to work together again.

Galway Rape Crisis Centre

GRCC’s vision is of a just and equal society where everyone has the right to live free from sexual violence and abuse. GRCC is dedicated to providing a professional, caring and confidential counselling and support service for those in our community affected by sexual abuse and sexual violence.

At Aviva, we believe passionately in promoting gender equality and inclusion. Our staff in Galway have built a close link with GRCC and recognise the importance of the work that they do. We look forward to building on this relationship and doing more to assist this important charity in our local community.

Partner selection

While there are undoubtedly many worthwhile charities out there, it was important for us in Aviva to ensure that we supported charities that aligned with our values but also that resonated with our staff. Our selected partners for the next two years cover a diverse range of social issues but support the Aviva communities. We want to make meaningful and measurable impact within those communities and through a process that involved staff voting we were able to choose our four worthy charities. We have a highly skilled workforce and look to benefit our partners through a range of activities including skill-sharing and fundraising.

To help strengthen the communities that we work in

  • We encourage our employees to contribute their time, skills and passion to their local communities.
  • Provide a bank of funds along with 21 hours paid volunteering leave each year.
  • Encourages employees to support charities of their choice.
  • Provides a match funding scheme to match funds raised.

Not only is this support good for our communities, but it also helps us attract, engage and develop talented people.

Its impact is shown in our “Voice of Aviva” survey results, where 87% of employees believe that Aviva is a good corporate citizen.
