We Are Straightline #2 - Getting A Bank Account

This week's show is about how to get a bank account!

Hillary and Brenda investigate why bank accounts are essential for life on the out, construction worker Femi tells us how he used one to escape gang life and Martin King from Lloyds Bank explain how they support former prisoners.

We've also got some top tips for how to get started with banking, even if you're struggling to get the right ID.

We Are Straightline is your guide to life after prison. People inside prison can listen to the show on 12pm and 6pm Fridays, repeated again 2pm on Sundays, so tell them to get involved!
