A new smart phone app has been developed which will enable visually impaired people to locate ATMs more easily.

Thomas Pocklington Trust (TPT) has been working with LINK to develop the ATM Locator App.

The app enables users with visual impairment and other disabilities to easily locate ATMs based on their access needs.

Users can filter their search to find ATMs that:

  • Have audio assistance
  • Are free to use
  • Belong to a specific organisation such as your bank
  • Are wheelchair accessible
  • Dispense £5 notes
  • Provide mobile phone top-up
  • Provide PIN management functionality

Users can get directions for walking, driving or taking public transport to the ATM, save their favourite ATMs and get advice and guidance for using ATMs.

You can find information on how to download the app on TPT's website here.
