Unity in the Community
We support charities and voluntary organisations in our local communities with volunteering and fundraising through our Unity in the Community staff programme. This is part of our continued commitment to being a socially responsible bank.
Our staff volunteering programme was originally established in 1991, and relaunched in 2009 as Unity in the Community, in celebration of our 25th anniversary.
To support our staff in making a difference, every member of staff gets five paid volunteer days a year, this encourages staff to get involved in their local communities and gives them the opportunity to support the causes they care about. Staff can take part in group activities arranged by the Bank or arrange their own volunteering opportunities.
