Feel good savings

All of our products have the feel good factor! Not only do our members have access to a full range of member benefits, at no extra cost, but all our profits go back to our members too. Now doesn’t that feel good.

Savings that benefit everyone

Saving for children

It’s never too early to start saving for our little cherubs. The sooner you do, the more potential there is for growth. And the more financial security you can give them.


Saving for you

They say that money can’t buy happiness. It’s true, but sometimes it can help you do the things you love in the future. Our range of savings and investment plans can help you towards reaching your goals.


Protect your future

The future can be a little unpredictable. None of us know what’s in store – or when. We’re here to help you be prepared with products designed to offer much needed peace of mind. Now who doesn’t want that?


Take out one of our products and you’ll automatically become a Foresters member with access to all our benefits.

Not sure which product works for you?

Everyone wants something different from his or her financial products. Spend a few moments to find out which ones might be best for you.

With no shareholders, I know Foresters are looking after our interests first.

We’re a Friendly Society, or sometimes referred to as a Mutual society. That means all our profits are distributed to our members through policyholder bonuses rather than going to shareholders. We also provide a unique Foresters Extras membership package and in 2023 we paid out over £1.72million to our members in discretionary grants and charitable donations. We explain what each product is, how it works and why it could be right for you.


Why choose us

We don’t have shareholders – instead our profits are distributed to our members through policyholder bonuses

Established for over 190 years with over 55,000 members. We are the 5th oldest mutual society in the UK.

What our members say

Even after 185 years our members are at the heart of everything we do. It means so much to us to hear what they have to say.

“I applied for the Educational grant as I needed financial aid for my forthcoming year of studies at University. As I have quickly learnt, being a student is expensive, and the money given to me from the Foresters has proved incredibly helpful, covering the costs of joining a sports team, as well as contributing to the living costs associated with being a student. The money given to me will allow me to make the most of my educational experience and time at university.”

Ryan, Redruth

“With the cost of living increasing, I have really struggled to stay afloat. I initially called to withdraw money from my LISA, but the lovely staff member that I spoke to told me all about the grants that Foresters have available and told me that I could reapply in the next term. This is something that I’m extremely grateful for. I don’t know any other financial services organisation that would do this for their customers, and it took tremendous stress off me. The grant has helped me to get on top of my finances and I’m extremely grateful to Foresters who are a wonderful organisation with friendly staff.”

Emily, Wallasey

“I had some surgery go badly wrong in July, which meant that I had to stop working. It is a tremendous help and encouragement to receive this grant. It will help enormously with general living costs at this strange and challenging time for me. I feel blessed to have Foresters on my side!”

Karin, Sheffield
