We Are Committed

Darlington Building Society is committed to putting our members first and is proud to say we have served 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 nine branches spread across the North East, County Durham and North Yorkshire, supported by Darlingtonline, the Society’s dedicated online banking service.
We offer a range of savings accounts and mortgages designed to help members save for the future and achieve ambitions such as owning their own homes.

Our Community

Being mutual means our profits are turned into lower mortgage rates, higher savings rates and support for local charities in our communities.

Plus, our colleagues raise money every year and spend time helping in the community. Making Darlington Building Society a great place to work, volunteer and give back to our communities.

Our Society Film

Our members and colleagues are the stars of our Society film. Members, representing all generations were placed at the film’s heart, highlighting how we have served local communities since 1856.
The film features several wonderful members, from those who have been with us for over 50 years to those who are just starting their savings journey.
