In branches

We have improved our branches to make access easier for everyone. For example, we have improved lighting levels and fitted handrails to steps.

The majority of our branches have:

• A permanent or temporary ramp or level access
• Automatic, bi-folding 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.

And all branches have low level writing shelves. 

Using cash machines

All of our cash machines have audible tone prompts after each key depression.
The keyboards on our new cash machines also have the following features:
• Raised dot on the number 5
• Coloured keys for 'entry' and 'error'
• A depression in the middle of the keys making the keys easier to press

Where possible, our newer cash machines have been installed at a height suitable for wheelchair access.
A guide to using our cash machines is available in Braille, large print or on audiotape.
