About the Foundation

At OneFamily we’re passionate about helping families across the generations. Through our OneFamily Foundation we give back to our customers, their loved ones, local communities and the causes they care about.

We do this in a number of ways:

  1. Personal Grants - Up to £1,000 is available to offer a financial helping hand to you, a family member or close friend.
  2. Community Awards - A chance for community projects to win up to £5000, £10,000 or £25,000. The public vote for our 2017 awards is now open.
  3. Charity Fund – £120,000 to support charity campaigns that help families ease financial strain.

If you're a OneFamily customer with an active policy, explore how you can make the most of this excellent customer benefit.
