The Aviva Community Fund supports projects that are fighting climate change and building stronger, more resilient communities across the UK and are investing in three key areas:

  • Building back better: helping society to bounce back from the pandemic by addressing the health and wellbeing, and economic impacts on communities and individuals
  • Climate champions: helping communities to prevent, prepare for and protect against the impacts of climate change
  • Financial empowerment: supporting financial inclusion and giving people the tools to become more financially resilient and independent

Any projects submitted should aim to:

  • develop a new approach, product or technology; or
  • implement a new initiative or pilot a new scheme; or
  • expand existing services to a new area or beneficiary group; or
  • adapt services to meet today's needs without compromising those of future generations
