My bank or utility providers won't send me letters or statements in my preferred reading format, what can I do?

Under the Equality Act 2010 your bank has to make reasonable adjustments to make sure everyone can access its services.

This includes providing bank statements in your preferred format, such as braille. These reasonable adjustments should already have been considered by your bank and can often be made easily and quickly, sometimes it's just a matter of asking for them.

You should never be asked to pay extra for the adjustments you require. If you're unhappy with the level of service you've received, even after you've asked for the adjustments you need, you should follow the bank's complaints process. If they can't help you, you might be able to make a complaint under the Equality Act 2010.

Further information can be found on RNIB's Equality Act 2010 webpages.
