We support a number of charities closer to home that do a great job in their local communities.
We use our skills and time, and offer a range of practical support to help our Community Partners achieve their goals.
In 2019 we raised over £132,000 for these causes.
We're an official BBC Children in Need Corporate Partner and we've hosted a call centre too. In 2019 we took around 2,350 calls.
Lots of community groups benefit from the money raised so we get to visit these projects and see first-hand the incredible work that they do.
Since 1998 our Charitable Foundation has donated over £1 million in grants to local charities and community groups.
We know it’s been a difficult year for savers. The Bank of England Base Rate is at an all-time low, and while many of our variable accounts don’t track base rate, it still has an effect on how much we can pay our members.
This means we’ve had to make some really tough decisions about reducing the interest rates we pay.
