Insurance Charities Awareness Week: learn more about support for current and former insurance employees - with Victoria Sutton from The Insurance Charities

Summary: The Insurance Charities was established in 1902 and it’s the only charity in the UK and Ireland solely supporting current and former insurance employees whatever their role. Last year it awarded over £1.3m, supporting those in the insurance industry facing difficult times and life changing events.

In this special episode, recorded for Insurance Charities Awareness Week, Adrian Saunders talks to Victoria Sutton about the support which can be provided to insurance employees and their families in times of financial hardship or misfortune.

Quote: “[By organising the Awareness Week] we want people to think about people in their insurance networks that might be struggling, and think, actually, you know what, I'll just mention that charity to that person, because I think they could do with it.”
