ReachOut are delighted to announce a new three year corporate partnership with AEGIS London.
AEGIS London is an underwriting business which trades in the Lloyd’s of London market.
They provide insurance and specialist expertise for a diverse range of business classes – from property and marine, to political risk and more. The AEGIS London values include investing in people’s potential, and openness and inclusion; and as such they are keen to support a local charity which helps to improve social mobility and supports young people from disadvantaged communities to fulfil their potential.
It was up to AEGIS London’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee to nominate a charity to partner with for the next three years. One of AEGIS London’s employees, Senior Risk Analyst, Shardaé Carr, was formerly a trustee of ReachOut and this partnership came about thanks to her recommendation – we are over the moon that they chose ReachOut!
We will be working closely with the team at AEGIS London to develop a bespoke and mutually beneficial partnership, which will include various volunteering opportunities for staff, fundraising activities, events and more.
ReachOut has recently confirmed an ambitious, three-year strategic plan as we aim to double the number of young people we support by 2024. It’s an exciting time for ReachOut as an organisation and long term, strategic partnerships like the one with Aegis are vital to our sustainability and growth. We look forward to working with the brilliant team at AEGIS London to create a truly inspirational partnership!
Bejal Shah, ReachOut’s CEO, said: “Thank you to AEGIS London for choosing us as your charity partner for the next 3 years! We are so excited to be working with a company that places such importance on inclusion and supporting individuals to grow and succeed. This long term partnership will allow us together, to have a huge impact on more young people who will benefit from the support of mentors, and we’re certain that all employees that get involved will get just as much out of the experience too!”
Nigel Roberts, Chair of the Charity Committee and member of the executive team at AEGIS London said: “We are delighted to be partnering with ReachOut – a truly inspiring and exciting charity. The work of ReachOut fits in with one of our key inclusion principles at AEGIS London in supporting social mobility. We see the mutual value, every day, which comes from investing in the potential of our employees and helping them to achieve the best they can, and we are keen to extend this to the wider community. We can help ReachOut with fundraising, but further to that by giving our people the opportunity to get involved mentoring others.”
