They all have a responsibility to ensure they have a positive impact on their communities and through their new strategy they believe they can do more.
They know that without access to appropriate mainstream financial services and tools, people pay more for goods and services and have less choice. The impacts of exclusion are not just financial but also affect education, employment, health, housing and overall wellbeing.
The pandemic has highlighted just how important digital and financial skills are. Millions of people have been forced to use the internet to carry out basic transactions, and for many this has proven a huge challenge. With an increasing range of services likely to move online in the future, a lack of digital skills will further reduce the choices available to people.
Who do they want to support?

There are millions of people in their society that are already at a disadvantage – through age, education, income, disability, or unemployment. Without the right support for them, the social inequality gap will only widen.
Many charitable and community interest organisations work with such groups; with people that feel the impacts of financial or digital exclusion the most.
They want to reach lone parents, single pensioners, migrants and refugees, those with long term illnesses and disabilities, those struggling to find sustained employment and households headed by students or part-time workers. These are among the groups most commonly excluded from financial services.
People with low or unstable incomes, or those who have experienced a significant life shock, are particularly affected by financial exclusion. The pandemic will only have made this situation worse, as more and more basic services have moved to the web. They want to help charities build their capacity to help people to become digitally and financially empowered.
