FSCS customer leaflet

The FSCS customer leaflets below can be used in-branch and on your website.

We are happy to provide guidance on using our materials and you can email us at with any questions you have about the designs. However, FSCS can’t provide sign-off for compliance purposes. You will need to speak with the FCA directly if you have any questions about compliance.

The materials use Open Sans as a font, so they can be edited without the need to purchase any new fonts. We recommend that all changes are carried out by a designer.
