The Co-operative Bank

Since 1872 the Co-operative Bank has been providing responsible banking, insurance and investment advice to customers and members. Being owned by a co-operative, they're accountable to members and customers, not shareholders. They believe that this is more relevant than ever today. The Co-operative Bank branch network is much smaller than other banks but their merger with Britannia Building Society means that they now have an additional 245 branches across the country at which basic banking services can be carried out face-to-face. For all other servicing requirements it's possible to use their UK-based call centres and website. The nearest current full branch is in Plymouth but there is a Britannia/ Co-op Bank branch in Truro.
