Community support scheme 

Does your community group need support?

The communities in which our branch network operates form the heart of the Society.

We are committed to giving something back to the communities in which our members and staff live and work. Each year we take part in a number of community events and help by giving donations and sponsorship to community organisations, groups and teams.

Some of the groups and events we have supported are shown below.

Newbury Building Society has a strong commitment to the counties it operates, and the Community Support Scheme provides a straightforward way for local groups and charities to secure valuable funding for their work.
