Furness Building Society was established in 1865, and originally began by playing a vital role for those in what is now South Cumbria and Furness peninsula, by helping them buy their own homes and providing a safe, solid and secure home for their savings.
We may have been around for over 150 years but we are a modern, forward thinking building society that is committed to remaining independent and mutual.
As our strapline says 'we always have your interest at heart' and we are proud to serve our local communities especially through our branch and agency networks and through the Furness Community Awards Scheme in which we help 150 charities and good causes every year to make a difference to local people.
Today, we have a branch and agency network covering Cumbria and Lancashire we service customers right across the UK through our direct business channels, such as Furness Direct and our website.
