Barclays and North Lincolnshire Council have joined forces to provide banking facilities in the heart of Scunthorpe. Scunthorpe Central now includes a Barclays Local where visitors can talk face-to-face with staff from the bank.

Help and advice is available on a wide range of issues, such as digital banking, money management, bereavement assistance, fraud and scams, payments and transfers.

Barclays Local is open Monday to Friday – for opening times and more information visit Barclays website.

Cllr Rob Waltham, leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said: “The council is on the side of our community and we stepped up to offer these facilities for free to help local residents get face-to-face access to banking.

“The new Barclays Local is a great addition to all the help, advice and activities that are available at Scunthorpe Central.

“Talking to someone face-to-face is vital for many people, especially older people who may have complex issues to deal with and are not as digitally savvy.

“I have visited the hub and was impressed with the friendly and helpful member of the Barclays team”.

A Barclays spokesperson said: “Barclays is committed to deploying a range of more flexible ways that customers can physically interact with the bank, this includes over 330 pop-up banking sites located in town centres, with a presence in spaces such as community centres, libraries and business hubs where it offers drop in and pre-booked appointments.

“We’re delighted to launch a banking service here in Scunthorpe. This represents our commitment to customers and the local community who wish to continue to have an in-person banking presence by offering the ability to visit Barclays on their local high street, albeit in a different environment.”
