Community and charitable giving

In a building society as vibrant as ours, there’s always something going on.

And our colleagues have proved over and over again they’re brilliant at fundraising and giving up their time for causes that are important to them.

You can find out more about how we support communities in our Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2018.

Creating a Society where no one's left out

Our initiative to create a Society where no one’s left out started in 2017, when our charity partnerships with Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer’s Scotland started.

Within a year of teaming up with them, we had at least one official Dementia Friend in every branch, which contributes to our ongoing efforts to provide a more inclusive environment for people living with dementia.

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

Supporting our community

Grassroots Giving was launched in 2013 to celebrate the Society’s 160th anniversary. Since then we have helped 975 community groups by donating £487,500 funding to help them build a brighter future in their local communities.

For 2019, we will be directing Skipton’s community funding to other worthwhile causes and full details will be revealed in the coming weeks.

We’re also proud to be a partner of Yorkshire County Cricket Club, enhancing the fans’ experience with a fan zone at a popular match during the season and sharing the benefits with members and the wider public through ticket competitions, events and player appearances.
