    Why can't it be sent online?
    (You pay the cash into your own account then send it online)

    Does somebody want to give the disabled person £70 a month?

    Could the donor not set up a standing order from his own account?

    Can't answer that, but I wouldn't think so. It's certainly not an option in their current account T&Cs or 'ways to bank' on their website.

    Why not give Nationwide a call (on the person's behalf, if their disability prevents them using a telephone)? You won't need to go through security for a general enquiry such as this.

    The question to Nationwide begins, "Hello, I'd like to give you some money . . .
    They should fall over themselves to help.

    "Fall over themselves"? Nah.

    I think they will be onto a loser. Do they have a current account? Might a posted cheque be an option?

    (I'm aware you've said "cash or cash" twice. Just trying to offer alternatives).

    Is there nobody to help the disabled person?

    Otherwise, what's to prevent the disabled person constantly going into overdraft?

    No it's not you just want that to be the only option!.

    For a disabled person with memory loss then the best option would be one that is done automatically without them having to do anything.

    So a second account should be opened with their bank. Setup a standing order which transfers the £70 from their main account to their second account on the day they get paid. Then have a standing order on the second account which pays it to the landlord when it is due.

    But if they have memory loss which would mean they would forget to save the £70 in their bank. What stops them from forgetting to not spend the £70 cash and not forgetting to pay it in?

    So, in summary, the answer to the question "Can it be paid via the post office or another bank?" is no it can't.

    So what are they (and/or you) going to do now?

    And what happens when they forget (as you've said they will) to put money into the envelope one week? It's a rubbish solution. If, as I assume they must, this person has money coming into an account on a regular basis they should set up another account, have a SO to move the rent money into that account, then another SO to move the £70 to the LL's account every month.

    If the memory loss is likely to worsen, should the disabled person be granting POA to a friend or relation?
