Community Savings is a charitable, non-profit organisation and relies on grants, donations and bequests to ensure the continued running of our longstanding initiative.
Customers’ money is not used to fund our operations and we strive to provide our member services free of charge.
Can you help?
In these times of rising costs and business cutbacks, any one of us might suddenly find ourselves in a situation when we can become overwhelmed by our financial problems. This can cause extreme stress and affect the whole family.
At Community Savings, we provide a free service for anyone who feels they need to talk through their problems confidentially. Our small team of experienced staff and volunteers will listen sympathetically and provide practical help in navigating through a difficult period.
For those who may find it difficult to open or maintain a bank account or feel that we can complement their existing bank account arrangements, we can open a basic account to manage your day-to-day finances and provide active budgeting advice and mentoring.
People who come to us for a sympathetic ear include those who may have been bereaved, lost their job or are on reduced hours. Those who are separated or divorced, and those who simply find it hard to make ends meet.
Community Savings is a charitable, non-profit organisation which, without government funding, relies solely on grants, donations and bequests with the aim of helping people in Jersey. Over the last 20 years we have helped over 3000 people in our community.
50% of our funding is gratefully received from Santander International, NatWest, Barclays, Lloyds Bank and HSBC, who recognise the services that we offer.
Perhaps you have experienced financial difficulty at some point in your life or have been affected by the experiences of someone you know who has. Would you like to help us assist others?
If so, perhaps you might be willing to make a donation?
If you would like to discuss making a donation, please contact:

We also receive financial support from various local charitable trusts and other individual donors who prefer to remain anonymous. Similarly, we receive professional advice, services and other operational support from a range of specialist providers on a discounted or pro bono basis.
