A good way to bank

We're committed to staying on your high street because we know face to face banking matters.

  1. We now have the UK's biggest branch network

    Our commitment to staying on the high street means we now have more branches than any other banking brand.

  2. Our extended Branch Promise

    We’ve extended our Branch Promise. Everywhere we have a branch, we’ll still be there until at least the start of 2028.

Worried about money? We're here to help

We have a manager in every single branch to listen to your unique situation and share tools and services they think could help.

If they believe one of our specialist teams or an independent organisation could better support you, they'll give you all the details you need to feel confident in reaching out to them.

You may want to call the branch to plan your visit, the phone number and opening hours can be found on your local branch page.

Not sure you're ready to talk in person? We have other ways you can talk to us about the cost of living.
