Principality Building Society is a mutually owned organisation, formed in 1860. It is Wales’ largest building society, and the 6th largest in the UK, with 53 branches and 18 agencies across Wales and the borders and assets of more than £7billion. The Society is committed to helping people to prosper in their homes and is committed to supporting the housing market in Wales.
It also prides itself on supporting the communities of Wales and in 2015 was crowned Wales’ Large Responsible Business of the Year by Business in the Community Cymru in recognition of its efforts in Wales. The Society has also entered a ten year partnership with the Welsh Rugby Union which will encourage, develop and grow Wales’ national game at all levels, commencing with the renaming of Wales’ national stadium to Principality Stadium in January 2016.
For thousands of people in Wales, homelessness is a frightening reality. Llamau is the leading homelessness charity for the most vulnerable young people and women in Wales. They are particularly well known for engaging with those at risk - particularly care leavers, young offenders, those at risk of offending, victims of domestic abuse, and people who have chaotic and disadvantaged lifestyles
