As a customer-owned mutual, we aim to offer the best support we can to our customers, during every stage in life. This includes those living with dementia, and their families and carers.
In December 2016, Skipton colleagues voted to partner with Alzheimer's Society and Alzheimer Scotland. As a result, we've made a three-year commitment to fundraising. Importantly, we're also seizing this opportunity to take action on dementia, as a business and as individuals.

We're following the 'Dementia-Friendly Financial Services Charter' and identified four key approaches that will help us.
