Membership for under 16's
If you have children, you could consider opening a Minor Account, for them, if they are under 16. We just need their Birth Certificate, along with your photographic ID and current proof of address, as above. A minimum of £1 is required to open a Minor Account. On reaching the age of 16, the account will automatically transfer to an adult share account (unles you tell us otherwise).
