At The Co-operative Bank, we've always been driven by something different - an ethical approach to banking. It’s why we were the first UK high street bank to introduce a customer-led Ethical Policy. This policy has been shaped by our customers since 1992 and continues to underpin how we do business today.

Community Directplus

The Community Directplus account provides Registered Charities, Community Interest Companies, Co-operatives and Credit Unions an ethical way to bank for free.

Customer Donation Fund

As long as you're a Community Directplus account holder you're eligible to apply for up to £1,000 from the Customer Donation Fund to support special projects and fundraising activities.

The Hive
