Supporting Our Communities

Community Programmes

Through our community programmes we aim to deliver sustainable long-term benefits that make a difference to people's lives and have a positive impact on the communities we serve.

As well as partnering with charitable organisations to provide meaningful help, we enable and encourage our colleagues to support the community organisations that are close to their hearts. We are passionate about giving our time and resources to those that need it, particularly in areas where our skills and strengths can make a difference.

Financial capability/education

 

Our commitment to financial capability includes MoneySense, the largest financial education programme in the UK and Ireland. We also support community-led financial education and helping our customers make informed financial decisions through initiatives such as personal finance reviews, frauds and scams workshops and digital tools to manage their personal finances.

 

MoneySense

MoneySense is our flagship financial education programme for 5 – 18 year olds, providing free and impartial information and learning materials to students, teachers and parents.

Through a range of different activities and online resources, including classroom workshops, games, activity sheets and parent articles, young people can learn about money topics in a fun, age-appropriate and relevant way. Skills such as saving, budgeting and fraud prevention are all covered in lessons that are tailored to each age group, making the content easy to understand and enjoyable to learn. The wide range of resources is suited to schools and home-learning.

 

Do Good Feel Good

 

Do Good, Feel Good is our annual bank-wide fundraising and volunteering campaign, where all teams and branches come together to give back to the local and national causes that we care about.

Through quizzes, bake sales, sponsored walks, bike-a-thons and raffles, our colleagues are hugely energetic and committed in their activities each year, raising significant sums of money for local and national charities.

 

Employee Involvement

Charitable giving is very much part of our culture at Ulster Bank. We provide ongoing support to many charities and good causes – large and small
