In 1998, former CEO Henry Engelhardt set up Admiral Group’s community giving fund, to help staff and their families who are involved with local charities, clubs and organisations.

Staff members can apply to Admiral Community Chest for funding for an organisation they or their direct family members are involved with. The scheme has been running for over 15 years and in the last 5 years alone, we have been able to contribute to well over 1,000 charities and organisations.

Some of the organisations that have benefited from Community Chest funding include:

  • Llanishen and Lisvane Scout Group
  • Glantawe Theatre Company
  • Labradors in Need
  • St Fagans Alliance Bowls Team

  • Port Talbot and District Amateur Operatic Society
  • Cardiff Hurricanes Flag Football
  • Rhondda Rockets Cheerleaders
