Support we offer in our branches

We want our branches to be accessible for everyone. Here you’ll find information and services to help make your branch experience better.

Talk to us in branch

Book a personal review appointment to review your finances with a Banking Consultant. They’ll be able to give support and guidance on better money management and your budget.

Appointments

If you have an appointment with us, we can make it easier for you:

  • We can arrange longer appointment times. We'll take the time to explain things and make sure you understand.
  • We can arrange for Deaf and blind manual interpreting for your appointment, just ask when you book.
  • You can have your appointment in a private and quiet meeting room.
  • If you have a support worker, they're welcome to come to your appointment with you. 
  • You can take paperwork home to read and decide in your own time. You can then come back to complete what you wanted to do.
  • You can do some types of appointments from your home by video call with a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter present.

Equipment available

If you find it hard to use your hands, sign your name or read information, we have some things that can help. Just ask one of our branch team:

  • Easy grip pens
  • Signature stamps can be ordered
  • Cheque book templates can be ordered
  • ID verification letters - prove who you are without a signature can be ordered
  • Clipboard for signing documents
  • Magnifying sheets
  • Coloured acetate sheets. Some colours are held in branch and others can be ordered

Branch set up

We want to make our branches easy for you to use. Some of the ways we do this are:

  • We welcome assistance dogs.
  • We have low-level or sliding counters.
  • Some of our interview rooms have wheelchair access.
  • We provide seating areas.
  • Some branches have lifts.
  • Some branches have low-level Cashpoint® machines.

Cashpoint®

Our Cashpoint® keypads and screens are easy to use. You can also select the audio function (Talking ATMs) on our Cashpoints. Just plug in your standard headphones to hear what's on the screen. Some of our older Cashpoints don't offer this service at the moment, so we're updating them.

Ask any one of our branch team or call us to find your nearest Talking ATM.

Your support options

You can now let us know which things would make banking that bit easier for you. We’ll then put the changes in place, where we can – and you won’t need to tell us again.

Support options

You can use our branch finder to find a Bank of Scotland branch near you. See what hours they are open and check what facilities and accessibility services are available.

Sunflower Lanyard

We know that not all disabilities and long-term health conditions are visible. That's why we use the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Lanyard scheme in all of our branches. If you're wearing one, we'll know that you might need a little more help.

Ways to bank with us

You can do your everyday banking at your local Post Office® or Banking Hub. It may be closer than a trip into town or to your nearest branch.
