How we manage and fund our purpose beyond business

Most of Simplyhealth's corporate giving is managed by our Purpose Beyond Business Group (PBBG), a team of volunteers who represent various business areas across Simplyhealth. They meet every other month to assess grant applications against our Corporate Giving Strategy, our areas of focus, and available funds.

Helping people across the whole country

We receive applications from small charities focusing on a particular issue in an area, as well as from larger, national charities needing support for locally delivered projects.

Why we use project based funding

Project-based funding ensures we can make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged and challenged people and fulfil our purpose. It means we can agree on clear outcomes and impacts with each charitable partner. If we just made general donations, we wouldn't be able to make as big a difference.

Take a look below at some of the causes we've been supporting.

Down's Syndrome Association

DSA (Down's Syndrome Association) is the only charity in the UK dealing with all aspects of Down Syndrome. 

DSActive, an intitiative of the DSA, provides an opportunity for people to get involved in sport, which enhances their wellbeing enabling them to get the right amount of exercise for a healthy lifestyle.
