Our awards and accreditations

It’s important to us to be an organisation that truly meets our members’ expectations – and one they’re proud to be associated with, which is why winning awards is something we’re really proud of. Take a look at just some of our awards below.

  • Fairer Finance Gold Ribbon for Savings

    Fairer Finance Gold Ribbon for Savings

    We’re always striving to do our best, so there’s nothing better than members telling us we’re getting it right. A 2019 Gold Ribbon from Fairer Finance lets you know we’ve performed better for customer experience than most other providers in the market (Fairer Finance, 2020). It means we excel at keeping customers happy, handling complaints, explaining our savings accounts clearly and making it easy to apply. Read more.

  • Moneyfacts Consumer - Best Building Society Mortgage Provider

    Moneyfacts Awards - Best Building Society Savings Provider

    We’ve been helping people save money and have the home they want for over 140 years. Since the very beginning we’ve been owned by and run entirely in the interests of our members – the people who have savings and mortgages with us so winning Best Building Society Savings Provider is something we’re really proud of.

  • What Mortgage - Best Shared Ownership Provider

    What Mortgage - Best Shared Ownership Provider

    We know one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to mortgages. So we’ve made it our business to lend not only within the mainstream market, but also to people whose needs are a little less straightforward. In fact, we’ve won the What Mortgage Best Shared Ownership Mortgage Lender four years running (2016-2019).
