Move Your Money
This year over 500, 000 people have already moved their money to an ethical bank. With widespread concerns about the banking system, credit union and co-operative and mutual banks and credit unions are thriving. Pledge to move your money with Move Your Money UK
These ethical, local banks provide a successful alternative to banking because they are owned by and run for the benefit of their members, everyday people, rather than outside shareholders and investors.
There are branches of The Co-operative Bank and building societies such as Nationwide across the UK, as well as local credit unions and options for internet banking.
Ed Mayo, Secretary General of Co-operatives UK, said: "Bank switching is more fun than bank bashing and it is more likely to be effective too. There are now co-operative and mutual options across the UK for current accounts, savings and investment."
