The challenging times we’re all experiencing means we’re getting a lot more calls than usual and our call times are longer. So we can support people in the most vulnerable situations, we ask that you only call us if your enquiry is urgent. You can still use our online and mobile banking services and our automated service.

Changes to our service

Like all businesses we have to work differently amid concerns regarding COVID-19 and prioritise the safety of our staff and customers. As a result we are temporarily stopping all applications from new customers.

We will review this decision regularly and will switch applications back on as soon as we can.

Existing customers can sign in and trade as usual.
