Barclays has a broader role in the community, in addition to our core business activities. As part of the 2015 Citizenship Plan, Barclays committed to invest £250m in the community by the end of 2015, investing both funds and the time and expertise of Barclays’ employees to deliver a positive social impact in the communities in which we operate. This commitment, presented as part of the Balanced Scorecard metrics, is reported annually to provide stakeholders with a cash value of Barclays’ commitment to the community and consists of the following elements: 

  • Direct cash donations to charities and NGOs
  • Monetization of colleague work-time volunteer hours
  • Supporting colleagues through Barclays’ community employee programmes, including matched fundraising, matched giving and volunteer grants

In 2015, we invested £63m in the community, allowing Barclays to exceed our Balanced Scorecard target of £250m invested in communities, with a total of £262m invested.

For detailed performance on the underlying 2015 Citizenship Plan metrics, please see the Citizenship Data Supplement 2015. More information on our 2015 programmes and a range of case studies is available on our website at home.barclays/citizenship.
 
In addition, we also provide further disclosures aligned to the Global Reporting Initiative G4 guidelines, in the Citizenship Data Supplement 2015 available at home.barclays/annualreport
