Community Work

As a financial services organisation with our roots firmly founded in helping people in communities to support themselves, Scottish Friendly is proud to continue our tradition of community involvement.

Scottish Friendly Book Tour

For over 20 years the Scottish Friendly Children’s Book Tour has toured UK wide supporting the Scottish Book Trust on their mission to help improve children’s literacy.

Action for Children

Scottish Friendly joined forces with Action for Children for their Christmas campaign, a charity that has helped 604,885 children, young people and families in 2020/2021, by responding to local needs in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

In December 2021, we knew that we wanted to give something back at Christmas. Last year we supported the Mental Health Foundation and this year the team wanted to do something special to support young people and families across the UK. For every My ISA and My Junior ISA product sold, we donated £10 to this amazing charity raising over £24,000 bringing support to families who need it most.

Alzheimer Scotland

Our colleagues raised over £2,000 by taking part in the Memory Walk. With everyone taking part venturing outdoors to walk, cycle or run for an hour. Colleagues, family and friends all joined in, in support of this important charity with many remembering loved ones along the way.

We also donned our Christmas Pyjama’s at home or for some of us, in work, raising another £200!

The Trussell Trust

Scottish Friendly has helped the Trussell Trust, which supports a nationwide network of food banks to provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, and campaigns for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.

There was no secret Santa at Scottish Friendly at Christmas. Instead, our colleagues answered the appeal to donate food to the local food bank to help our local community.

STV Children's Appeal

Scottish Friendly is a proud member of the Friends of the STV Children’s Appeal club. We support the appeal to tackle child poverty across Scotland.
