We’ve played a valuable role in building vibrant local economies. We’ve supported people and schemes that have made ‘here’ a better place. From doing the small things differently, to investing in genuine innovations, we’re proud of what we’ve helped people achieve. Today we’re still backing people who have vision and ambition to get them to where they want to be. We've always helped you strive for financial independence. Now, as an independent bank once more, we're working as hard as ever to meet your expectations.
Throughout our history we’ve supported people and schemes that have made ‘here’ a better place. It’s been a journey of progress and we’re not finished yet.
Our latest banknotes include Great Britain’s first polymer £5 note and our £10 polymer note. These notes are cleaner and more durable than any other in the UK. A fitting tribute to our innovative heritage.
