A Safe Home for Savers and Safe Homes for our Communities.

Our members are at the heart of everything we do. Founded in 1849 to help people buy enough land to secure the vote, our mission today is to be a safe home for savers, and to provide safe homes for our communities.

In 2021 we changed our name from Ipswich Building Society to Suffolk Building Society, to better reflect the broader community we serve.

As a mutual Society, we know the importance of protecting our environment, supporting local communities and acting with integrity.

We are where we’re from. Suffolk through and through.

When we make a profit, it goes towards investing in the future of the Society and doing good in our community.

How we’re supporting Suffolk


Making a Difference. Together.

Safe Homes for Suffolk

We believe everyone has the right to a safe home. Lack of affordable housing, debt and life events can push people from all walks of life into homelessness. Others may feel unsafe in their home through the threat of domestic abuse. We’re supporting Ipswich Housing Action Group, Emmaus Suffolk and Lighthouse Women’s Aid to provide access to safe homes.

Saving Suffolk

Our natural environment is under threat. We’re backing impactful initiatives to protect local nature and wildlife. Supporting Suffolk Wildlife Trust to return 289 acres of arable land back to nature at Martlesham Wilds is the first of these projects.

Still Here for you

We exist to
benefit our members.
Now and for the future.
