UNISON’s Friendly new partner

Union announces new member benefit partner for savings

UNISON has partnered with savings provider Shepherds Friendly to offer members a variety of tax-efficient savings plans and solutions for the whole family.

Shepherds Friendly is a mutual society, wholly owned and run by its membership, and has been providing financial security to members since its foundation in 1826.

In addition to their ISA and Junior ISA, their product range includes plans exclusive to friendly societies, that offer extra tax-efficient savings over and above the annual ISA and Junior ISA limits.

As a mutual society, Shepherds Friendly is solely focused on its membership and ensuring that it provides outstanding levels of service, as well as products invested in a sensible and responsible manner in order to try to provide the best returns possible.

The society won a number of awards in 2017, including the Investors in People Gold Award in recognition of its defined and embedded core values and principles related to its focus on its members, as well as being highly commended in the MoneyAge ISA Provider of the Year award.

Shepherds Friendly’s savings plans are flexible and accessible: you can start saving into an ISA from £30 a month, or you can open a Junior ISA for your children from just £10 a month. Both plans offer the option to add one-off lump sums, and don’t require a regular commitment to keep the plan open.
