Supporting our local communities

Giving back to here

Yorkshire has been good to us for over 150 years. People and businesses have trusted us to help them with their finances. So giving something back seems only natural. It’s our pleasure to do it. More than 20% of our staff regularly support their chosen charities through our payroll giving scheme. They also volunteer for charities and projects in work and in their own time. Together we can keep making ‘here’ a better place.

Supporting projects in the community

Strong foundations

We’ve been supporting local communities and making a difference to real lives since we first opened our doors. We’re here to help improve the fortunes of people and businesses, because when they prosper so do the places they live in and work in.

We all have a Plan Me

Most of us have a goal. It might just be as simple as taking up a new hobby. Or maybe it’s on a grander scale. We like to think of this as having a Plan Me. Check out our hints and tips on how you can save money for your own Plan Me.
