In the community

We strive to support the communities in which we operate. The West Brom fundraises every year for a nominated charity and offers assistance to local causes and community groups through grants and corporate volunteering.


Supporting the community is integral to the West Brom and this comes across powerfully in the commitment and compassion shown by our colleagues in raising money each year for the Society’s chosen charity.

Community grants

We help charities in our branch network area and other parts of the West Midlands through a grant scheme, the Mercian Community Trust. This is funded by our Community Account and administered in partnership with the Diocese of Lichfield.


Giving time is often just as important as giving money and our people are always willing to help. West Brom colleagues are encouraged to participate in a variety of volunteering sessions with local community organisations.
