WIBF’s corporate partner Assurant, which provides specialty insurance products and related services, has partnered with My CWA, a Cheshire-based charity dedicated to supporting victims of domestic abuse. This partnership is a significant step towards supporting the victims of domestic violence and abuse in the local community.
The partnership is an extension of Assurant’s commitment to community engagement and social responsibility. Earlier, Assurant had supported the charity by making a cash donation to support a Santa’s grotto, which received an overwhelming response from its community.
Going forward, Assurant’s employees can support My CWA by volunteering, sharing skills, and participating in fundraising activities. The partnership aims to provide long-term support to My CWA and assist the charity in its efforts to help individuals and families affected by domestic abuse.
My CWA is a local charity that provides free and confidential support to individuals affected by domestic abuse. The charity works tirelessly to empower survivors of domestic abuse by offering counselling, advocacy and practical support to help them rebuild their lives. The partnership with Assurant will provide much-needed support to the charity, enabling it to expand its services and reach out to more people in need.
Assurant’s commitment to social responsibility extends beyond providing financial support to charitable organisations. The partnership with My CWA is a testament to the company’s dedication to making a positive impact on the communities it serves.
The partnership with My CWA is part of Assurant’s broader commitment to the communities where they live and work, which includes initiatives to support diversity, equity, and inclusion, employee well-being, and environmental sustainability.
Commenting on the partnership, Assurant’s President, Europe, Christian Formby, said, “We are delighted to partner with My CWA and support their efforts to help victims of domestic abuse. We recognise the critical role that organisations like My CWA play in supporting individuals and families affected by domestic violence and abuse. We are committed to making a positive impact in the communities where we operate, and we look forward to working with My CWA to support their vital work.”
My CWA commented: “We’re so looking forward to working with the Assurant team in the year ahead and can’t wait to update you on the positive impact their support has on the lives of those in need. Domestic abuse affects all genders, ages, cultures, traditions. and economic backgrounds. And it can happen in any type of relationship – regardless of sexual orientation, with or without children. It can also affect wider families and friends. Community partnerships have such a significant impact on the work we do and the people we help – they help raise awareness, build long-lasting connections and help employees give back to their local communities”.
The firm sees its partnership with My CWA is a crucial step towards addressing the issue of domestic abuse and empowering survivors to rebuild their lives. And with Assurant’s support, My CWA can continue to provide much-needed support to those affected by domestic abuse, ensuring that they receive the help and support they need to move forward.
