Nationwide

A corporate partner of Shelter

Nationwide has now partnered with us for more than 21 years. Over this time, they have donated over £7 million and helped over 100,000 people facing the housing emergency.

They’ve also been vocal advocates of our policies and have campaigned in support of our shared belief that everyone deserves a safe place to call home.

Both Nationwide employees and members have backed our partnership; organising fundraising activities, volunteering at our services, and donating supplies to our charity shops. Nationwide also held a Christmas Gift List appeal, with employees donating thousands of gifts for our service users.

But our partnership is about more than just fundraising. By working closely together, we’ve been able to share insights and influence the type of changes that have a positive impact on the housing emergency.

For example, Nationwide was the first mainstream buy-to-let lender offering tenants the option of longer-term contracts. And it was one of the first lenders to lift the restrictions on buy-to-let landlords renting to tenants on housing benefits.

This year, we’re combining our strengths to address the challenge of how to build the social homes we need whilst still supporting the country’s pledge to reach net zero by 2030.

And this year for the first time, Nationwide will be donating £10 for every new FlexStudent account opened throughout August and September. They hope to raise £200,000 and bring this year’s partnership value up to an incredible £1.2 million between 2022 and 2023.
