About Us

The reason for forming and the purpose behind Save Our Savers is best summed up by the Rt Hon the Lord Naseby PC, one of their founder members;

“Savings are so vital to our Society in good times and bad times. They create the engine of future economic growth and provide a safety cushion for families. Yet despite this no British Government in living memory has put savers ahead of borrowers. There is a need of fundamental change of attitude to savers from any future Government and the financial sector; this the challenge and task of SOS.”
