It's good to be different

But it’s better to turn words into action

We know it’s not always easy telling banks apart. So why should you believe us when we say we are different?

For starters, it's not lip-service, being different is who we are.

Since 1872, we’ve held co-operative values at our core. It’s why we’re the only high-street bank with a customer-led Ethical Policy. And these values are integral to the service and products we offer today:

  • We believe in being fair.
  • We believe in capping customer charges and providing support to local co-operatives.
  • And we believe in doing our bit, like working with Oxfam and the Woodland Trust, to help end poverty and support the UK’s environment.

Let’s be honest, though. You shouldn’t take our word for it. We’d rather let our actions do the talking.
