How content are you with the services your bank offers?
Will you pledge to support the establishment of the Northern Mutual?

Do your local MLAs support the Northern Mutual?

It's simple. Fill in the form below and an email will be sent to the MLAs in your constituency asking them to support the Northern Mutual campaign. Review the email wording before you send. You will receive a copy of the same email in your inbox. Feel free to let us know if you receive any responses!
