• Making a Difference in the Communities We Serve in Scotland


    Colleague Volunteering

    In 2015 our colleagues spent 360,000 hours volunteering to make a difference in their communities. They support our Charity of the Year as well as charities and organisations that are local and personal to them, utilising their core skills and resources to help improve education, employability and enterprise to strengthen community organisations across Scotland. Have a look at the fantastic stories of our colleagues below.

    Our ambition is to make a difference in the communities where we live and work to help Britain prosper. Supporting and encouraging our colleagues to use their skills to volunteer for the causes that matter to them, plays a key part in achieving that.

    Kamel Hothi,  Head of Colleague Volunteering & Fundraising, Bank of Scotland 

    I think it is very important for colleagues to take the opportunity to get involved in volunteering and support local community initiatives, a key part of our Group’s Helping Britain Prosper Plan.
