Starting a family

Plan for a new way of life

Having a child is a wonderful time – we could help you, now and in the future.

Get ready

  • Planning for your arrival

    New arrival, new mortgage?

    Need a bigger home for your new family? Get an Agreement in Principle (AiP) for a mortgage to see if you could borrow what you need – without affecting your credit score.

    Welcoming a new family member

    Get prepared for your new arrival by chatting to us about budgeting and saving.

    Want to spread the cost?

    If you want to spread the cost of purchases before the arrival, a Barclaycard could help – there may be one to suit your needs. Subject to application, financial circumstances and borrowing history.
