Member offers and entitlements

 
 

Membership of UNISON comes with many benefits, from free legal services and statutory rulebook benefits to discounted stays at our holiday village and a range of exclusive financial deals.

 

UNISON members are entitled to a whole range of benefits and services as part of their membership, including some benefits guaranteed to all members by our union.
  • Croyde Bay Holiday Village is situated on the north Devon coast and has been owned and operated by UNISON for more than 80 years. It is a popular addition to the benefits of UNISON membership, offering competitive rates, with special discounts for UNISON members and families. There are additional discounts for low-paid UNISON members.
  • We offer a number of legal services to members and their families, for help with issues within and outside of the workplace. This includes assisting with workplace problems, injury claims, clinical negligence and free legal advice, wills and conveyancing.
  • UNISON members are entitled to a range of exclusive deals and discounts that we have negotiated with a number of suppliers. We choose reputable companies that provide value and good customer service. These UNISON Plus deals add real value to UNISON membership: over time members can save the cost of their UNISON contributions many times over.
  • Other member benefits include professional indemnity insurance of up to £1 million for NHS staff; book grants and small financial grants and a free quarterly members' magazine.

Independent mortgage advice at preferential rates. UNISON Living’s trusted partner can help you save on the most important thing you’re ever likely to buy.

We are proud to be the UNISON Living partner for mortgage advice you can trust.

Our job is to find you the right mortgage whatever your situation:

  • moving home
  • first-time buyers
  • re-mortgaging
  • help to buy
  • other types of mortgages

All UNISON members can access a complimentary, no obligation consultation with one of Lighthouse’s independent mortgage advisers.

If you decide to go ahead with our recommendations, we will reduce our usual fee to just £249 – which is £246 off our usual fee of £495.

We will ask you about your finances and help you work out how much you can afford to borrow. We will explain the various types of mortgages and recommend the most appropriate for your circumstances. We will then search the market to find a suitable deal for you. As well as finding you a suitable mortgage at a competitive rate, your adviser will tell you about other costs you will have to pay, and guide you through the entire application and approval process. Importantly, they will also recommend ways of protecting your mortgage payments against the unexpected.

Or call 08000 85 85 90 or email enquiries@lighthousemps.co.uk. With our help, you could end up saving hundreds or even thousands of pounds in mortgage repayments.

 

We may be paid commission by the lender, usually 0.2%-0.4% of the mortgage. For a £100,000 mortgage we would receive £200 – £400. Commercial and business buy-to-let mortgages are not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on a mortgage or other loans secured on it.

Fill in survey. Win weekend break. Nice.
Equality. It's something we can't get enough of at UNISON. Some would say it's one of our core values. Others would say, quite right. 
Anyways, we love it so much we do an annual survey all about it. The results inform our campaigning work and our campaigning work improves equality for everyone. Nice. And if you help us by filling it in this year, you could win a mini break. Also pretty nice.
Fill it in and win!
