Many congratulations to John Collins, our Chief Legal and Regulatory Officer, who has been awarded an OBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List, for services to financial services during the pandemic. This is great recognition for John and colleagues across Santander UK who have provided crucial support for our customers and communities over the past year. Commenting on his award, John said: “I am privileged to accept this honour as the public face of Santander. This is recognition of the spirit of who we are – by coming together like never before and adapting to this huge shock in how we live our lives, our teams worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to innovate and to be there for those most in need of support from the financial services industry. I see this award as recognition of the tireless efforts made across all teams in the bank and want to dedicate it to my colleagues.”

Santander UK are delighted to have been awarded the Carer Confident Active Award through the Employers for Carers benchmarking scheme, which acknowledges employers who are building a supportive and inclusive workplace where carers are recognised, respected and supported. The Active Award acknowledges our commitment to carers and the support our workplace practices provide to help carers to combine work and their caring responsibilities. We want to do more to support carers. This year our Families & Carers Network is working with our charity partner, Alzheimer’s Society, to help make our support for carers easily accessible through a Carer’s Policy.
