Friends of Ruskin Park

Many friends groups find that opening a bank account, no matter how they are organised (community group, charity, etc), can be one of the most difficult administrative aspects of managing a friends group.

Banks often have restrictions on what types of accounts they can offer to groups, and sometimes there may be charges for running the account.

Here is a list of websites that offer some advice for groups wishing to open a new account. Please note that we are not endorsing these websites or accounts. Offers may have been withdrawn since the sites were published, but hopefully it gives something of a head start in your search.
