About us

Since 1853 we’ve been dedicated to helping people save for the future and achieve their dreams of owning their own homes. We’ve come a long way, and we’re now one of the UK’s largest building societies.

We’ve grown and changed but we’ve always stayed true to our roots. Being there for our customers to help them have a better life is still – and always will be – at the heart of what we do.

What matters to you matters to us. We listen so we can understand what makes you tick. At Skipton you’re always a name, never a number.

As a mutual organisation, we're owned by our members, not shareholders

When you save or take out a mortgage with us, you become a member of Skipton Building Society. This means you have a say in how the business is run. We are passionate about putting the needs of our members and their communities at the heart of everything we do.
