Putting members first

We are a mutual at heart, putting our members first and have been since 1856.

We have nine branches spread across the North East, County Durham, and North Yorkshire. The branches are supported by our on-line banking service, Darlingtonline.

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

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

Our Purpose


Improving the lives of our members and communities through supporting home ownership and encouraging saving.
