Supporting communities without access to everyday banking
Banks across the UK continue to close their branches, leaving many people with little to no access to their bank accounts. With this in mind we are providing access to multi-bank kiosks at two of our branches, Gosforth and Knaresborough, through a pilot with OneBanx. The OneBanx kiosk helps restore access to cash in communities where banks have closed their doors.

Small businesses and personal customers can make deposits using their account number and sort code. The kiosks use Open Banking technology to allow users to withdraw and deposit cash from any bank in the Open Banking network. This facility makes it a convenient and accessible way to access their bank accounts.
“As an independent business owner time is often in short supply, and undertaking routine banking tasks can be pain-staking when you haven’t got nearby access to a bank. The OneBanx kiosk provides a lifeline to both the market traders and local residents of Knaresborough. It’s the first time I’ve heard of a solution like this, and as an independent business trading on the market it’s so convenient to have these services right on our doorstep!”
