Most people find accessing cash easy. It's our job to keep it that way, and help those who find it difficult. We work in the public interest to connect a reliable ATM network to every major bank and building society. We also make sure people in every corner of the UK can access cash. We'll keep doing it even as the amount of cash being used changes rapidly.
