How to join
Joining couldn’t be simpler.

Online is the easiest way to join the community bank.  It only takes a few minutes of your time, can be done in the comfort of your own home and only requires some basic personal information.

If you have your driving licence or passport details to hand then this will help speed up the identity checks that are performed but these details aren’t mandatory to your online application.  If the online identity check fails then we may need to ask you for some additional identification, but we will let you know.

A deposit of £1 is required and must be maintained as your minimum shareholding in the bank. This is a condition of membership.
