Do you want to be one of our Suppliers? Here you'll find all you need to know about what Vitality looks for in our suppliers and how to start that process.
We offer a unique brand of health and life insurance. We’re part of Discovery Holdings. This is a worldwide group protecting over seven million members in 19 countries. This includes Europe, the United States, Australia, South Africa, Canada and China. We have three UK sites: London, Bournemouth and Stockport, with over 1,800 staff.
There’s no other insurance provider quite like Vitality. We have a core purpose to make people healthier, to enhance and protect their lives. We put this into practice through our shared value business model. This is based on behavioural economics.
This enables you to take a more active role in your own physical and mental wellness. It encourages the development of healthy long-term habits.

What are we looking for in a supplier?
To support our vision of being the best insurer in the UK, we look for suppliers who can show:
We pride ourselves in being positively different. This makes it vital that our business and yours work together.
We have high ethical standards and are accountable to the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority).
We aim to provide excellent service right through the supply chain. This is why we deliver the highest quality to our members.
Suppliers should identify and introduce process improvements. We also expect cost-effective sustainable solutions wherever possible.
Expertise & industry knowledge
Suppliers should be industry experts and provide us with advice and support.
Innovation and improvement
Suppliers should challenge our processes and look for a better way of working.
Responsible and positive
We expect our suppliers to act with integrity at all times.
From humble beginnings in 2017, we have held an annual Supplier & Partner Awards ceremony, to recognise and reward those who have gone above and beyond our expectations to help us achieve our corporate goals.
We issue awards in a variety of categories and use the opportunity to spread the word of Vitality’s vision and values, to ensure our suppliers and partners align with us to deliver more for our members. Our recent event in 2023 was the biggest and best yet, and we are pleased at the tremendous feedback we have received.
It was such a delight
