The Nationwide difference

All about membership


Building society Nationwide

We want to do our best for our members, and a vital part of this is supporting the communities in which they live and work. In 2007, our members voted for at least 1% of our profits each year to be donated to good causes. This has allowed us to support thousands of charities and community projects across the UK.

Living on your side

In 2012, we launched Living on your side, a five-year strategy, bringing to life our brand promise to be on the side of our members.

Our members, employees and charity partners have worked together to benefit thousands of communities across the UK.

The future

We believe everyone should have a place fit to call home, and this year we are working on a new programme to help make this happen.

Based on feedback from members, we are developing a new social ambition to find local solutions to national housing issues. We will be working with members and colleagues locally to make a long lasting difference to their communities.

The Nationwide Foundation

The Nationwide Foundation is an independent charity funded by Nationwide. Since 1997 the Foundation has made grants of over £30 million to over 3,000 charitable causes.
