Banking for Charities, Social Enterprises & Co-operatives

We understand your needs

Our experienced relationship managers understand the unique challenges of your sector and your organisation. As a Co-operative Bank customer, you will benefit from our in-depth knowledge and our commitment to providing high standards of customer service.


Benefit from our expertise

We provide a tailored service and dedicated relationship managers to support larger Charities, Social Enterprises and Co-operatives who typically turnover more than £2 million.

Our relationship managers are committed to providing a personal service alongside a flexible approach. With smaller portfolios to manage, they are able to work closely with you, focusing on the specific needs of your organisation. What's more, you can receive expert guidance along with regular face-to-face review meetings and visits.
