Accessible cards

We’ve teamed up with the Alzheimer’s Society to make our debit and credit cards easy to use, whatever your needs. Our cards are designed with everyone in mind. And they’re sustainable too!

On our newest cards, you’ll find:

  • An arrow at the top and a notch at the bottom signalling which end to put into card readers and ATMs

  • Tactile raised dots making it easier to tell different cards apart

  • Flat-printed card details that are bigger, bolder and longer lasting

  • Improved contrasting colours for easier reading

You’ll also now find all your card details together on the back of your card.
