Our mission; achieve growth by being socially focussed, customer centred and commercially driven.

Since we were established over 30 years ago, we have sought to put social change, social benefit and community involvement at the heart of what we do.

In that time, we have created a sustainable, socially responsible business. We use our customer deposits to reinvest in other organisations and help create social change.

Our vision; Unity will be the bank of choice for the trade union and social economy movements.

We are committed to enabling social development and supporting community involvement. We are passionate about helping our customers achieve their goals in the development of communities and in the people that they support. We do this by making banking simple for them and by providing financial and practical support for events.
