The bottom line is… my bank understands the needs of community businesses like mine.
The Co-operative Bank is the only high-street bank with a customer-led Ethical Policy. So naturally, we’re delighted to feature our customers in our latest business banking campaign; people who run the small to medium-sized enterprises that are helping to transform our local communities.
Here, Jen from Back on the Map tells us why they chose The Co-operative Bank:
“Back on the Map aims to address severe social and economic problems in Hendon, Sunderland. We create better housing and reduce anti-social behaviour through initiatives like our award-winning Transforming Hendon Project, which gave a facelift to 550 homes in some of the worst-affected neighbourhoods.
We are proud to bank with The Co-operative Bank because they share our ethics and values. We believe in doing good. By providing us with free banking for our charity, they enable us to use the money we’d ordinarily spend on banking fees to deliver more services for the local community whilst increasing the productivity for the business. And that means we can improve the quality of life for many more local people in Hendon.”
