One of Liberty Specialty Markets’ core principles is to ‘help our communities to prosper’, and we commit time, funds and energy to ensure that people in our communities have the chance to enjoy a better quality of life.
We are committed to:
Liberty Specialty Markets entered into a strategic partnership with WaterAid in June 2015, an international organisation whose mission is to transform the lives of the poorest and most marginalised people by improving access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene. The partnership will see a significant sum donated over three years to the charity with specific support for a project in Madagascar to reach remote rural communities with water, toilets and hygiene education. Our staff also get involved in a range of fundraising events including comedy and quiz nights, bake sales and physical team challenges.

The Line is an outdoor contemporary and modern art experience in East London on the banks of the River Lea linking London’s Olympic Park with the O2 venue. The trail includes a number of contemporary art sculptures, including works by Damien Hirst and Eduardo Paolozzi.
Liberty Specialty Markets is ‘The Line’s Official Insurance Partner’ and has also adopted a section of river around The Line through the Canal & River Trust which provides staff volunteering opportunities.

In the wider community, we contribute to a number of charities each year, both through direct donations and by supporting staff who are involved in fundraising.
As well as encouraging our staff to raise money, we also encourage them to give their time and skills to valuable causes. In London, we are a member of the Lloyd’s Community Programme (LCP) which aims to help build a stronger local community through projects in London’s East End.
Through the LCP, a number of employees from Liberty’s London office have become Reading and Number partners with children from a local school in the City, giving up one lunchtime per week/fortnight to visit the school and work with a child to help them to develop their reading/number skills.
‘Serve with Liberty’ is an annual Liberty Mutual communities initiative, where staff take part in such volunteering projects and undertake practical tasks such as tidying community gardens, painting internal areas of charity/community centres or collecting and sorting food for food banks/soup kitchens.
