Case studies

We use our customers’ deposits to fund projects that have clear social impact.

These include creating housing, health and community facilities and office space. All of these projects have a life-changing effect on the people who benefit from them by improving their overall wellbeing.

Unity is also committed to supporting positive economic change. Our loan activity has created nearly 5,000 jobs over the past five years and we have increased our lending to Responsible Finance Providers, helping SME’s to access the Government’s Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS).

We believe it is important to be transparent, so that our customers and stakeholders understand how we make a difference. You can read our most recent case studies below, or select by region or sector.
