About Us

The building society difference

The Cambridge is an independent, mutual society which has been integral to the community since 1850. We provide funding for people buying their own homes and are a trusted home for people in a position to save.

The Cambridge is built on the core values of:


We always act with openness and transparency and have our members’ interests at heart


We work to enrich and support the lives of people today and to ensure future generations benefit from our being


We make sure our teams are knowledgeable and we always invest in them. We know this is key to the experience we deliver


We build products and services suited to our members and we strive to deliver an experience and environment that is best suited to their needs

Making The Difference means finding new ways to help people have a home.

How? By thinking differently to help those who can't afford to buy, and by working differently with community partners to improve access to shelter and housing.

As a member-owned mutual, our community has always been close to our hearts. After all, without the people of Cambridge, our Society simply wouldn't exist.

That's why we're working hard to give back when we can... and Making The Difference is how we're doing it.

Proud to be part of the Women in Finance Charter.

We pride ourselves on being a fair and inclusive Building Society. And we know that our members admire and respect the moral fabric that’s always been found at the heart of The Cambridge. 

So as part of our constant pursuit of equality, we’re excited to announce our support for the Women in Finance Charter. Becoming a signatory of the Charter isn’t just a sign of our beliefs. Or a step on our journey. It’s a promise of our sincere commitment to promoting gender balance and diversity in financial services. Both now and in the future.
