UK Savings Week is all about how a small start can lead to a big change, and spreading the word that it all adds up to something good.
This year, as part of our UK Savings Week efforts, we are encouraging everyone to:
- Set a savings goal
- Make it a habit
- Reward yourself!
No goal is too small – whether it’s a holiday or a takeaway, we want to encourage the habit of saving, and rewarding yourself is a great way to make that habit stick.
And if you have young ones in your life, UK Savings Week is a great opportunity to introduce them to saving.
Start ‘em young with our Young Saver
A savings habit is a hugely important skill that we can pass on to the young people in our lives. It can help them learn to appreciate money and set them up for success when they reach the age where they manage their own.
We believe our Young Saver Account is a great place to start, whether you are a parent, relative or guardian looking to open and maintain an account on behalf of a nominated young person, or are between the age of 13 and 18 looking to save up for that special something, or even start setting money aside for the future.
The account has a competitive interest rate which is paid annually, and withdrawals can be made at any time without notice or penalty.

Do you have young children in your life, or know someone who does?
Children have wild and wonderful imaginations, and the stories we read and the fictional worlds we immerse ourselves in our early years often stick with us into adulthood. That’s why for a limited time, we are giving away a copy of our newly published children’s book – “How Roommates Became Savers” – to everyone who opens a Young Saver Account.
The book, which tells the tale of how building societies were originally formed in a child-friendly and charming way – using animals, milkshakes and delightful woodland homes, is a great way to introduce the topic of saving to children at a formative time in their lives.
Perfect for setting a goal and making it a habit, the book includes space for children to set their own savings goals and track their progress.
