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 2020 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.

  • 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 five years running (2016-2020).


WARNING: The mortgaged property (which may be your home) may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.
