Social investment

Improving communities is at the heart of everything we do. Our vision is for everyone to have a place fit to call home. To help make this happen we have three key priorities:

  • preventing people from losing their home

  • helping people into a home

  • supporting people to thrive in their home environment.

Oakfield, building a community

Our 239 home not-for-profit housing development is creating a new movement in house building.

Supporting charities

We work closely with housing charities Shelter and St Mungo’s. And we support our people to volunteer and fundraise for charities close to their hearts too.

Building mutual respect

We want to help create a society that’s built on mutual respect. That’s why we’re partnering with other organisations committed to creating a more caring and respectful society, in all walks of life.

The Nationwide Foundation

The Nationwide Foundation is an independent charity creating lasting change to tackle disadvantage in the UK. Its vision is for everyone to have a decent home that they can afford. The Nationwide Foundation is supported by an annual donation from us and so far has awarded over £40 million to more than 3,000 UK charitable causes.
