Our Community

We’re committed to supporting our local community.

As a mutual building society we are dedicated to supporting our members and the local communities in which they live.

From our commitment to sharing 5% of our net profits through grants, to staff sharing their time and skills with local organisations, we believe in supporting our local community in any way we can.

It is important to us that our members choose where our charitable giving goes. At our Annual General Meeting each year members vote for the causes most important to them, which pave the way for our charitable grants that year.

Here are some of the ways we’re helping to make a difference where you live:

- Sharing funds through our 5% pledge

- Our staff volunteer their time with local charities and organisations

- Sharing spaces and expertise with local charities and organisations

- Local fundraising to support organisations

In 2020, the Society announced we will extend our 5% pledge commitment until 2025, you can read more about it here.
