Charity Sector

Charities and not-for-profit organisations play a crucial role in society, which is why we’re dedicated to helping them prosper.

Our tailored suite of products and services are designed to meet the specific ever-changing needs of this unique sector.

Managing your day-to-day finances

We aim to help you minimise costs through our discounted charity tariff, and maximise the returns on your cash reserves through our range of deposit solutions.

For established organisations looking to grow, buy new premises or who have seasonal variations in income, our loan and overdraft facilities can support you.

Organisations that need to send or receive funds internationally can benefit from our international payments services and foreign exchange portal.
