Nationwide Building Society is the world's largest building society, run for the benefit of its members. Helping its customers with current accounts, mortgages, savings and other personal finance. As a business they strive to support all members of the community. The Nationwide Foundation is committed to tackling the root causes of the social issues that lead to disadvantage, poverty and inequality. 

Nationwide's Bridgend and Neath branches have chosen Emmaus South Wales as their local charity to support this year. The staff from both branches are supporting Emmaus South Wales in as many ways they can. This includes raising money, volunteering their time and also offering their banking expertise to ensure formerly homeless people get the second chance they deserve.

Emmaus South Wales were lucky enough to receive a community grant from Nationwide to support our solidarity outreach work in the local community.

In October last year eight members of staff from the Bridgend Nationwide branch swapped their usual day job to help clear and clean the Community, ready for the arrival of new Companions.
