Our Corporate Responsibility

The Arc Angels begin the new decade with some exciting news about our new charitable partnerships for 2020.

The team at Arc Legal is passionate about giving back to the community and supporting both its local community and national causes. Under Arc Angels, our corporate responsibility programme, not only do we support our chosen charities for corporate support each year, our employees also nominate a chosen charity which is close to their hearts.

This year we have chosen to support Insurance United Against Dementia (IUAD)  as our main corporate charity.

Dementia is the UK’s biggest killer and even though one person develops the condition every 3 minutes, there is currently no cure. 

The Alzheimer’s Society is the leading national dementia charity that campaigns for change, funds research to find a cure, and supports people currently living with the disease.

IUAD is an Alzheimer’s Society movement created and championed by leaders from across the insurance industry with the goal to raise £10m to fund vital research and raise awareness of the disease that affects millions of people across the UK.

We’ve chosen to partner with IUAD and join the cause uniting our industry. Through this partnership we’ll give our team plenty of opportunities to support the Alzheimer’s Society through fundraising and volunteering activities, as well as organising a special workshop to show the team how they can become Dementia Friends.

In addition to our support of IUAD, we will also continue to provide corporate support to a number of social and charitable organisations, including the Police Service of Northern Ireland Football Club (PSNI FC) and the British Police Cricket Club.

Each year we give our team the chance to vote for the charity they would like to support throughout the next 12 months. For 2020, we have chosen Thrombosis UK.

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is the most common yet preventable cause of UK hospital deaths, yet many people have little or no understanding about the causes and effects of the condition.

Thrombosis UK is a leader in working with the NHS, healthcare providers and individuals to work to improve the prevention of VTE and the management and care of VTE events.

Staff will be raising funds for Thrombosis UK throughout the year by organising various fundraising activities.

We also support other charitable activities alongside our employees including Barnardos and Secret Santa appeal.

 

A year of FUN-draising!

Throughout 2020 we will be organising a number of fun events to raise money and awareness for our charity partners. Keep an eye on our social media channels for updates and photos!

“Arc Angels is a key element of the company’s ethos and culture. Giving something back to the communities in which we and our partners operate adds another important dimension to our business.”
