Corporate Social Responsibility Partnerships
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) partnerships between businesses and not-for-profit organisations like RoSPA, are often considered to be one of the most effective ways of creating positive social change. Delivering a positive impact for people by creating a programme of activity that creates a safe environment and a workforce fit for the future is a hugely valuable goal and has benefits for your customers, employees, consumers and partners alike:
B2B customers want responsible and values driven suppliers
Prefer to work at an organisation that is purpose and values led
Want to purchase from organisations with clearly articulated values
Want to work with an organisation that has a clear and compelling story aligned to their values
Reasons to build partnerships with social purpose
Accidents can change lives. In England in 2017 over 780,000 people were seriously injured or killed in accidents at home, on the road or at work – many of them preventable.
We’ve worked with many organisations to help them deliver their CSR strategies by combining our skills and experience to create a programmes of activity designed to raise awareness, educate, and empower those most at risk of accidents to live safer, active lives.
"Working with partners means we can achieve so much more and that is why we are delighted to be collaborating with RSA. RoSPA and RSA are organisations with people at their heart and our association has the potential to make a real difference to the lives of those most vulnerable to accidental injury."

An example of a current CSR partnership
In 2019, we established a long-term strategic partnership in support of RSA’s CSR strategy ‘Confident Futures’, which focuses on ‘Shaping a smarter tomorrow’.
"Raising awareness of issues and changing behaviours through education is at the heart of RSA's Confident Futures strategy and our ambition to shape a smarter tomorrow. Our partnership with RoSPA is an important part of that journey. Together we aim to raise awareness of the simple steps we can all take that allow us to live safer, more active lives. This research is a start point, helping us identify those who are most at risk of harm, understand the barriers to action and ways we can overcome them."
Chief Claims Officer, CR Executive Sponsor - UK & International, RSA
Through this partnership, we’ve supported RSA activities which help people and businesses to get ahead of risks through education, awareness-raising and encouraging behaviour change. It’s about helping people better understand the risks they face so that they can adjust their behaviour to mitigate them.
