Charities and communities

Helping our communities with the cost of living

We’re committed to helping make life better for the people in our communities. The cost of living crisis means many families are finding it harder to heat their homes and put food on the table. So we've given a million pounds to projects in and around Coventry helping those who are most affected.


Our cost of living fund is going towards tackling food and fuel poverty and homelessness, and helping support children’s wellbeing and potential. We’ve given every state school in the city a grant towards the things their pupils really need.


Our colleagues have also donating food and gifts to local food banks and charities, as well as warm clothing to charities helping homeless people.

There for the isolated and vulnerable

Our branches are part of the ‘Connecting for Good’ programme, run by the charity Grapevine. We want to make sure nobody in Coventry needs to feel lonely or isolated. 
Citizens advice

A place to call home

The pandemic has made things even harder for people struggling to keep a roof over their heads. This year we’re giving extra support to Coventry Citizens Advice so they can take on more debt advisors.
