Q: Why did you pick Framework for your Doing Good Together campaign?
A: In January 2011, staff at The Nottingham selected Framework as our fundraising partner. Framework is based in Nottingham and work throughout the East Midlands in supporting and preventing homelessness and offering routes to employment. The charity supports over 8,000 clients a year with accommodation, housing support as well as ‘walk-in’ services and education, volunteering and employment help. Most clients are aged under 35 and up to a fifth have mental health needs.
Q: If I sign up to your newsletter will you sell my information on?
A: No, you don’t need to worry. At The Nottingham we won’t sell your information on to any third parties to use either by post, telephone or email.
We may use the information you supply to keep you informed of current or new products and services, carry out market research or to remind you about any renewal dates.
Q: What is a ‘whole of the market’ mortgage?
A: Think of us as mortgage brokers. When a customer comes to us looking for a mortgage we compare the market and then recommend the best mortgage to suit the customer’s needs. Like other building societies, we do sell our own mortgages, but we would only recommend this if it was the best mortgage for their requirements.
