With no shareholders, every penny we earn is either reinvested into supporting our customers and healthcare charitable projects. Our people are always looking for new ways to make a difference to ensure Simplyhealth is sustainable for our customers.
Danny, Debbie, Bob and Robin are just a few members of staff who have made a difference, watch their videos below.
Supporting our local communities isn't just about donating money; it's also about donating time. At Simplyhealth we're passionate about donating our time to support causes that are close to the areas in which we work and live.
Staff volunteers share their experiences of working with Revitalise, the National Trust and Teens Unite below.

They replaced normal lighting for LED lighting in our Andover offices. Just by doing this small change we've saved £4,800 which can be used to support our charities.
Revitalise offers respite holidays and support for disabled people and their carers. We recently sent 10 volunteers from our Andover, Manchester and Winchester offices to help out at Revitalise centres.
Kesser Mahmood, Customer Adviser, Manchester, said: "At first I was nervous and unsure what to expect or how to engage with guests. During the day it was emotional and really rewarding engaging with people, providing support and talking."
The National Trust works to protect historic places and spaces across the UK. A team of volunteers from our Bristol and Andover offices recently helped out at White Horse Hill, Oxfordshire.
Lisane Harris said: "We helped thistle spud the area to conserve wildlife and re-chalked the white horse to upkeep the appearance of this historical site. Being out of the office for a day, doing manual labour, got our blood flowing and boosted our wellbeing."

Simplyhealth's Assurance Services team recently took part in a team event to build bikes for Teens Unite, a charity local to our Bristol and Andover offices. Teens Unite is dedicated to improving the lives of young people, aged 13-24, with
cancer and other life limiting illnesses.
Commenting on the day, a staff member said: "Undertaking a challenge which benefited others was a fulfilling experience. It was extremely rewarding."
