Community banking

There is an overarching philosophy behind much of the work carried out by Bendigo and Adelaide Bank in both its day-to-day banking activities and in the work it does with Australian communities on activities unrelated to banking.

In particular, our Community Bank® initiative continues to resonate with customers and their communities a decade after it was first introduced.

Community Bank® branches provide communities with more than just quality banking services – they deliver employment opportunities for local people, keep local capital in the community, are a local investment option for shareholders and provide a source of revenue for important community projects determined by the local community.
