Our community programes

Through our high street brands, we’re an integral part of communities across Britain. We support them through our core products and services, but we want to do even more. Why? Because over 250 years’ banking experience has taught us that when local people, local business, and their communities all prosper, so do we.

In our Helping Britain Prosper Plan we’ve made public commitments to help communities in a number of different ways, including: colleague volunteering; support for community organisations; donations to our four Foundations; and fundraising for our Charity Partner, Mental Health UK.

Alongside our Helping Britain Prosper Plan commitments, we also run a number of community investment programmes. They focus on three core themes: education, employability and enterprise. We encourage colleagues to volunteer their time and expertise to support these programmes, many of which involve local charities and community organisations as well as social enterprises.
