These apply from 01 January 2020 until 31 December 2020 at which point they’ll be reviewed to ensure they’re still right.


A Society where you really matter

When you open a savings account with us you become a member and that matters. Because you get a say in how we run things rather than shareholders, it means we can reinvest in the society and the services we provide to you. Our savings pledges are our commitment to you through some common sense policies and services, which we provide to give you that extra peace of mind.

We’re passionate about delivering a real difference and being there when you need us most, in the good times and the not so good times. So when something unexpected happens and you need access to your money, we’ll make sure you have the support you need by talking through your options. In some circumstances we may be able to waive any withdrawal restrictions.


Our Savings Pledges

These apply from 1st Jan 2020 until 31st December 2020 at which point they’ll be reviewed to ensure they’re still right.

Support when you need it most

Enjoy peace of mind from the knowledge that if your circumstances change, we’ll be there to help you or your immediate family with a review of your fixed term or limited access accounts. This could include critical or terminal illness, death, redundancy, nursing home or elderly care costs, divorce or court order.

Know your savings account is right for you

We could help you make the most of your money with a savings health check. Pop in to see us and whoever your savings are with, we’ll use the Moneyfacts Rate Checker to make sure your accounts are right for your savings goals.

The Moneyfacts Rate Checker is supplied and powered by Moneyfacts Group PLC.

Learn about new savings accounts first

Simply share your email address with us and be one of the first to hear about new savings accounts – so you won’t miss out on any that might interest you.

​Your 14 day rate pledge

If, within 14 days of you opening a Fixed Rate ISA or Bond, we launch an equivalent account with a higher interest rate of 0.20% or more, you will have 14 days to switch and enjoy the higher rate. The new account will need to have the same access conditions and end date (or is within 2 months of it) as your original account.

We’ll treat you right when we offer new products

We won't offer new customer only products. So if a product is available to a new customer, our existing customers can choose it too

Subject to eligibility criteria.​

Just pop in, no appointment needed

We’ll do our best to always have someone available to speak to you about your savings so you can open an account on the spot.

Our Savings Pledges reinforce the commitment we have as a Society to act in the best interests of our customers and to put them at the heart of what we do, especially in such a challenging interest rate environment. This dedication to our customers is something we’re passionate about and really sets us apart.Mike Regnier - Chief Executive
