Teachers Building Society was delighted to donate £4775 to the Education Support Partnership in July as its annual Charity Saver Account donation.Teachers Building Society

The Education Support Partnership is the UK's only charity providing mental health and wellbeing support services to all education staff and organisations and is a result of the Teacher Support Network, Recourse and Worklife Support, merging in 2015.

The Teachers Building Society Charity Saver was set up in 2010 to provide a competitive saving rate for savers whilst at the same time providing valuable help to teachers. Interest from the accounts is donated annually to the Ed Support – the equivalent to 0.25% of all the funds invested.

Simon Beresford, chief executive for Teachers Building Society, said: “We are delighted to be able to make another meaningful donation to the Education Support Partnership. The support services offered by the Partnership are invaluable and as a Society founded by teachers for teachers, it’s an important way in which we can continue to support teachers today.”

Julian Stanley, Chief Executive of Education Support Partnership sais: “We are hugely grateful to Teachers Building Society and their members for their continued support, which is invaluable to the hundreds of teachers – and other education staff – who call our helpline in distress each day.”

The Charity Saver is now a closed account which ran from 2010 to 2014. Donations continue to be made every year from the invested funds.
