Northern Rock Foundation

Society and lifestyle

Northern Rock Foundation was an independent charity and company limited by guarantee in the United Kingdom. It was formed in 1997 when the Northern Rock company was floated on the stock exchange. The foundation has continued for a number of years after the bank was nationalised, and later purchased by Virgin Money, but in April 2014 it was announced that it would be wound down after not being able to agree funding terms with Virgin. It closed in 2016.
