Mental Health Accessible

1 in 4 people experience a mental health problem each year which makes it harder for them to use services like banking, energy and broadband. It’s vital that firms take steps to make their services as accessible as possible.

That’s where our Mental Health Accessible programme comes in. We work with firms to help improve how you support customers with mental health problems – from the accessibility of your website to the tone of your debt communications.
