    I use a power chair to get around most places, so accessibility if key for me being included and engaging with others.

    However, I understand that these RBS mobile banks are inaccessible for wheelchair users and people with mobility problems.

    This is yet another example of discrimination due to lack of accessibility to services and impacts far more on wheelchair users that live in rural areas than it does those in urban areas, often with a selection of banks and building societies to choose from.
