Barclays – Digital Poverty Alliance Partner.

Who we are

Barclays is a British universal bank. We are proud of our history and the deep roots which make us part of the fabric of the UK.

We are fully committed to supporting the millions of customers and clients who put their trust in us, every day. We work hard to make a positive difference to the communities where we live and work. 

Our success is judged not only by commercial performance, but also by our contribution to society and how we act responsibly for the common good and the long term.

The outbreak of COVID-19 has brought in to sharp focus why we need to continue to challenge ourselves every day. We aim to identify ways we can help alleviate the social and economic impact of this crisis.

We’ve partnered with trusted charities that are making a positive impact in our communities by supporting people hardest hit by the pandemic. Read about the difference their work is making.

Barclays have partnered with the Digital Poverty Alliance to provide funding for projects as part of our COVID-19 Community Aid Package, delivering vital relief to vulnerable communities impacted by the pandemic.

We are providing funding for the second stage of the Tech4Teachers initiative, a project that will provide computers to teachers at schools in disadvantaged communities.

Our Mission

Throughout the pandemic, Barclays has been committed to helping its customers, clients, colleagues, and the wider community deal with the unprecedented social and economic crisis caused by COVID-19.

Through Barclays’ COVID-19 Community Aid Package, we’ve given £100m to support more than 370 charity partners around the world deliver vital relief to vulnerable communities impacted by the pandemic.

Since April 2020, we’ve also matched £8.1m raised and donated by colleagues for COVID relief efforts – which has meant a total of more than £16.2m for 2,000 charities around the world.

Projects

Tech4Teachers Scheme

Barclays have partnered with the Digital Poverty Alliance and Intel to provide funding for the second stage of the Tech4Teachers initiative, a project which provides laptops to teachers to improve the quality of teaching at schools across the UK.

This stage of the campaign has started to connect teachers who lack adequate online access with 550 new devices, to enable them to better support over 20,000 school children in the most disadvantaged communities.
