We’re driven by

We’re proud of our home and the people who make it. Proud of our values and way of life. And we’re strong champions of giving back to communities.

Our mission is to provide a safe home for savers and a safe homes for communities in Suffolk and the surrounding areas.

We do this by providing carefully crafted products and a great service, but we’re also dedicated to giving back directly to the Suffolk community through causes that support our mission.


How we help our communities.

Financial education.

Our bespoke financial education programmes are aimed at Year 2, Year 10 and college students. We also work with prison rehabilitation programmes in the county. Each session is delivered by our trained staff, teaching financial literacy through real life scenarios and games, meeting the needs of the National Curriculum.

Contact your local branch to book a session.


We encourage our staff to get hands-on with charity groups and community enterprises, offering half a day per month to volunteer in work time. This can either be through regular roles or ad-hoc, one-off tasks and doesn’t need to be related to their role at the Society.

Get in touch if you would like to request help or promote a volunteer role to our team.

Financial support and grants.

As part of Suffolk Community Foundation’s ‘Suffolk Fund’ we help to support grass roots organisations.

From time to time we may also be able to support additional sponsorship requests and distribute smaller grants.

Help in kind.

If you have thought of a different way we may be able to help with your organisation or event please get in touch with your local branch and tell us more!
