Provident’s primary social benefit is making financial products and services available in a responsible manner to those who are not well served by mainstream providers. Alongside this, we help the communities in which our customers live and work.
Through our Good Neighbour community investment programme we support projects tailored to meet the needs of our communities, through direct financial support, encouraging our people to volunteer and through employee matched fundraising.
Our approach enables us to support a range of grass roots community organisations across the UK and Ireland. So we’re delighted to be sponsoring this year’s Small Charities Week in partnership with the FSI.

Remember a Charity
Remember A Charity was formed in 2000 and the consortium has over 140 member charities working together to encourage more people to leave a charitable gift in their Will, once they’ve looked after family and friends. Together, we aim to do what no single charity can do alone – to make charitable legacy giving a social norm.
We work with member charities and partners in the legal sector, government and private sector to promote charitable giving in a way that no single charity can do.
Although 74% of the UK population supports charities, only 7% currently include a charitable legacy when making a Will. Charitable legacy income is worth £2 billion a year. If we could grow the market by just 4% we would all increase the value of our share and generate a further £1 billion a year for good causes.
We are making significant progress. Research shows that 17% of the public claim to have left a legacy. This is the highest level since Remember A Charity began monitoring public attitudes to legacy giving.
