UK Finance responds to Community Access to Cash Pilots initiative's plans

Responding to the Community Access to Cash Pilot's announcement of its plans for pilot locations across the UK, Eric Leenders, UK Finance Managing Director, Personal Finance, said:

While growing numbers of customers are increasingly choosing to pay digitally, the banking and finance industry is committed to ensuring that access to cash remains free and widely accessible to those who need it. The Community Access to Cash Pilot is an important initiative, which will offer sustainable alternative solutions to branches which meet the needs of communities and individuals. The range of innovative ideas announced today marks a key next step in the progress of the pilots. 

?We will continue to work closely with the Community Access to Cash Pilot, the Post Office, LINK, and the regulatory authorities to ensure that access to cash is protected and maintained for local communities and consumers alike.
