Tackling Financial Exclusion: A country that works for everyone?

The Select Committee on Financial Exclusion was appointed by the House of Lords on 25 May 2016 “to consider financial exclusion and access to mainstream financial services”. This final report by the Select Committee sets out a number of recommendations on how to ensure ‘the system’ works for all.

The report concentrates on:

  • The extent and nature of financial exclusion
  • Leadership from Government and proactive regulation
  • Financial education, advice and capacity building
  • Financial exclusion and vulnerable groups
  • Access to financial services
  • Financial exclusion, credit and borrowing
  • Welfare reform and financial exclusion
