Where possible all of our new and refurbished branches have been designed with the following features:

  • A permanent or temporary ramp
  • Automatic or power assisted doors
  • Audio Induction loops installed on some counter positions and a portable induction loop that can be used during meetings and interviews
  • Interview rooms at ground level with access suitable for wheelchair users

  • Layout and signage designed with suitable colour contrast to assist our partially sighted customers

The keyboards on our new cash machines also have the following features:
