About the Lloyd’s Register Foundation

The Lloyd’s Register Foundation is a UK charity established in 2012. With our mission to protect the safety of life and property, and to advance transport and engineering education and research, the Foundation has an important role to play in meeting the challenges of today and the future. 


The Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees, which is responsible for setting the Foundation’s strategy and for ensuring it fulfils its objectives – delivering public benefit – and for ensuring good governance. The Managing Director, Richard Clegg, is responsible to the Board for the operation of the Foundation.


The Advisory Council was set up at the end of 2015 to assist the Foundation on delivering our charitable aims. It provides independent expert advice, support and constructive challenge in areas including developing general strategy and plans, identifying new funding opportunities and emerging priorities, maximising impact plus suggesting other bodies to work with. The Advisory Council meets twice a year.

A proud tradition

The Lloyd’s Register Foundation is a young charity, set up in 2012, but it is the product of an organisation with a long tradition of public benefit, Lloyd’s Register.

Connecting science, safety and society

Our strategy sets out how we focus on key objectives under four strategic themes: promoting safety and public understanding of risk; advancement of skills and education; supporting excellent scientific research; and accelerating the application of research.  

Promoting safety and public understanding of risks

We aim to make a recognised, distinctive impact on enhancing safety of critical infrastructure important for society through building scientific knowledge, promoting technology application, and enhancing the uptake of research evidence into policy and practice. We also support organisations where activities enhance the safety of life, property and the environment.
