We Are Committed

Darlington Building Society are committed to putting our members first and are proud to say we have been serving the local community since 1856.

Our Society was formed as the Darlington Working Men’s Equitable Permanent Building Society, to benefit local people from the very beginning.

Today, the Society has 9 branches spread across the North East, County Durham and North Yorkshire, supported by Darlingtonline the Society’s dedicated on-line banking service.

We offer a range of savings accounts and mortgages designed to help members save for the future and realise the dream of owning their own home today.

Our Community

Being mutual, means our profits are turned into lower mortgage rates, higher savings rates and support for the local charities close to their hearts.

Plus, every year our staff raise money and spend time helping local communities. Making Darlington Building Society a great place to work and the employer of choice for every member of staff.

Our Society Film

Our members and staff are the stars of our Society film. Members, representing all generations, were placed at the heart of the film, highlighting how we have been serving members, staff and local communities across the North-East since 1856.

The film features satisfied members, including some who have been with us for more than 50 years, and others who are just starting out on their savings journey.

Why not take a couple of minutes and watch them in action.
