Benenden - A Personal Healthcare & Wellbeing Provider

Welcome to Benenden – a group of organisations providing a range of different products that share the same powerful ethos. Our vision is to become the UK’s leading health and wellbeing mutual community.

The Benenden Healthcare Society Limited is a mutual, founded in 1905. Its original mission in the early 20th Century was to provide affordable treatment for postal workers suffering from Tuberculosis before evolving into the organisation it is today now providing a wide range of discretionary healthcare services to a membership of over 800,000 people.

Our health offering has been supplemented with other wellbeing and insurance products to help sustain our core historical product and ensure that our mutual model remains the largest part of our operations going forward.
