Across the UK, 227,000 households are facing the worst forms of homelessness. A further 1.8 million households on low incomes are living in poor conditions, experiencing damp, mould and overcrowding.

That’s why we’re partnering with Crisis, and working with Simon Community in Northern Ireland. Driven by our purpose of Helping Britain Prosper, we want to ensure that everyone has a safe and affordable home. Not only is it the right thing to do, but it creates a stronger and more productive society and benefits everyone.

Together, we're calling for the UK to build 1 million more homes for social rent by 2033.

Our partnership in action


Homelessness Covenant

In 2024, we were proud to sign up to the Homelessness Covenant, developed by Crisis and the DWP (Department for Work and Pensions) and DLUHC (Department for Levelling up, Housing and Communities). The Covenant is a pledge by employers to prevent and end homelessness through inclusive and supportive employment practices.

This includes providing employment and training opportunities for people at risk of, or experiencing homelessness, adopting fairer recruitment and employment opportunities, and helping end homelessness in communities through raising awareness, fundraising, and volunteering.

Our charitable Foundations

Our four independent Foundations have been supporting homelessness charities and projects for over 30 years.

This sits alongside the work we already do with vulnerable customers, to ensure that those without a permanent address don’t go without access to bank accounts too.
