Thank you to Branch Managers Steven and Lin as well as Public Affairs Manager Geraldine for meeting me at Lloyds Bank in Bloxwich.
It was great to hear about the range of support they are offering to the local community. This includes:
Support for vulnerable people in opening bank accounts.
Bank Financial Assistance team to help people struggling financially.
‘Pay As You Grow’ loans for employers wanting to invest to grow their businesses.
Variety of support for customers – from Customer Service Assistants to web chat
Training of colleagues to help tackle fraud.
This week is International Fraud Awareness Week. Lloyds is part of the national TAKE FIVE campaign which offers advice on the steps you can take to protect yourself from fraud. You can find out more here.
