Rothesay Life strives to be an active contributor to communities within the UK. As a business and as individuals, we contribute to causes that we believe will result in the greater well-being and security for present and future generations.
the sick children's trust
The Sick Children's Trust believes keeping families together significantly improves the recovery of seriously ill children. They provide free, high-quality ‘Home from Home’ accommodation, as well as emotional and practical support, to families with sick children in hospital in the UK. They work with hospitals, supporting them in their role and providing complementary support to families. They relieve some of the emotional and financial strains at a very stressful time, providing an essential service free of charge for up to 146 families every night, 365 days a year.
Rothesay Life’s Charity of the Year programme works to champion a charity that is nominated and voted for by employees. In 2018 employees voted to support The Sick Children’s Trust. Through fundraising activities Rothesay Life is helping to ensure that The Sick Children’s Trust provide the best possible care, support and services to families when they need it most.
Age UK is the country’s largest charity dedicated to helping everyone make the most of later life.
Age UK provides services and support at a national and local level to inspire, enable and support older people. They stand up and speak for all those who have reached later life, and also protect the long-term interests of future generations.
Rothesay Life sponsors the production of the Age UK Bereavement guide – this is a booklet which helps the elderly overcome and understand the impact of bereavement. Whilst bereavement is not a happy topic to consider the guide can provide critical help at a time when it is much needed.
Rothesay Life has also supported Age UK’s annual Love Christmas Carol Concerts in London each year since 2014.
