Our Charitable Foundations

As one of the UK’s largest corporate donors, we use our scale to reach people in communities across the country.

Our four independent charitable Foundations, which cover the whole of the UK and the Channel Islands, are critical to our vision of tackling social disadvantage by partnering with local charities to help overcome complex social issues and rebuild lives.

In 2019, the Foundations received £25.2 million from Lloyds Banking Group, enabling them to support almost 3,000 charities. These charities are tackling issues such as domestic abuse, mental health, modern slavery and human trafficking, and employability.

Our work together goes beyond traditional funding as we seek to share our skills, experience and knowledge, demonstrating a genuine partnership between the Group and our Foundations as part of our commitment to helping to tackle social disadvantage.

Spotlight on Mental Health 

We're proud to have supported our four independent charitable Foundations for almost 35 years. Our funding allows them to make grants to charities helping people in communities all over the UK and Channel Islands. The charities they support help people wo are facing complex social issues, including mental health, helping to tackle disavdantage and helping Britain prosper socially. 

Improving mental health is an important way the Foundations are helping to tackle disadvantage in communities, by helping local charities to support individuals in improving their mental health and moving on with their lives. 

Our four Foundations are currently funding 294 charities, where supporting people around mental health is a part of what they're delivering. They are investing almost £8 million in those charities over the lifetime of their grants - helping thousands of people to change their lives for the better.
