Review of initiatives to tackle financial exclusion.

Policies between the devolved administrations also diverge. In addition, the voluntary and private sectors are crucial to providing services to financially excluded groups.

• identify and evaluate research on forms of financial exclusion;

• appraise relevant policy initiatives, identifying those vulnerable groups left out of current initiatives, either entirely or partly;

The study covers money and debt advice, financial capability, banking, affordable credit and insurance in all four countries of the UK. The report concludes with recommendations for both government and the financial services industry.
