“Barclays' commitment to looking at the needs of people with accessibility issues has been critical to our relationship”.

Samantha Aarvold, Head of Financial Control

Guide Dogs

“The relationship we have with Barclays is so much more than the banking transactions”.

Samantha Aarvold, Head of Financial Control

Founded in 1934 Guide Dogs provides ease of access for blind and partially sighted people.

Having been with their previous bank for over 30 years, the thought of switching seemed onerous. And despite being a long-standing relationship, it went little beyond transactional processing.

With a strong understanding of the charities industry and mutual ambition to make the world more accessible, Barclays offered a partnership beyond banking.

Having introduced high visibility debit and credit cards, talking ATMs and contactless donation buckets, Barclays has an established accessibility agenda.

And our simple four step process, single point of contact and dedicated Switching Team ensured the move to Barclays was seamless with minimal disruption.

With a shared vision for the future, both organisations can continue to learn from and be guided by each other.
