Community and charitable giving

As a mutual organisation, we recognise the importance of supporting the community. We've supported numerous good causes throughout the country, not only through financial donations, but also with fundraising.

Our chosen charity

During 2017 and 2018 we're proud to be supporting Alzheimer's Society and Alzheimer Scotland.

There are 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK. Around 225,000 people develop it every year – roughly one person every three minutes. Without action, these numbers are predicted to rise.

People with dementia – along with their carers, friends and family members – sometimes need a helping hand to carry on their daily lives and feel included in their community. The Alzheimer's Society launched Dementia Friends to increase understanding of the disease and inspire people to take action and support those affected in their area. So we'll be fundraising, volunteering, helping to raise awareness and encouraging colleagues to become Dementia Friends.

Research by the Alzheimer's Society shows people with dementia find it challenging to do business with banks and building societies. So, in addition, we're putting plans into place that will make us a dementia-friendly organisation.

Alzheimer's Society registered charity number 596645. Alzheimer Scotland registered charity number SCO22315.
