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’re bold enough to do things differently and brave enough to break new ground. Together we’ll learn from every experience, embrace every opportunity, and we’ll face every challenge with confidence and pride


With honest advice and sincere intentions, we promise fairness and balance in everything we do. We'll stay true to our word and loyal to our members, keeping their best interests at the heart of our approach


We’ll stand proudly together as a member-owned mutual, supporting the community that builds our Society. With local hearts and life-changing ideas, we’ll make a difference today and for the generations that follow


We’ll make our expertise count for every customer, with clear advice and a simple approach. The knowledge of our teams can mean everything to our members, so we’ll keep investing in our people to inspire their growth


We’ll be here whenever we’re needed; listening, learning, adapting, and innovating. We’ll be healthily restless and always open to change, ready to evolve in tune with our members and the world around us

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.
