Social Impact

Our Social Lending Impact

We focus the lending of our customers’ deposits on projects where there are clear social impacts. This includes creating housing, community space and office space for organisations to carry out their vital work for the benefit of communities, society and the environment.

All of these projects have a life-changing effect on the people who benefit from them by improving their wellbeing and lives. We have a ‘double bottom line’ strategy and this means that social impacts are just as important to us as financial returns.

We believe it is important to be transparent, so that our customers and stakeholders understand how we make a difference. You can find details of all our loans with our ‘where we’ve helped’ map.

For an overview of our Social Lending Impact for 2014, view our publication – Our Social Lending Impact 2014.

Please note: the case studies featured represent our social lending from January 2012 to date.
