Report of the Financial Inclusion Commission

The Report of the Financial Inclusion Commission and an explanation about their work is available on the commission's website.

The Local Government Association submission highlighted, with examples, the work of local authorities in developing support with partners for Universal Credit claimants including financial and digital training.

The LGA submission also refers to local authorities' valuable work with Credit Unions, and also banks to facilitate availability of better financial options locally.  The local authority role in providing local discretionary support when necessary as a safety net was also referenced.  

The LGA submission is posted alongside the other written and oral evidence which contributed to the report.  The LGA would like to thank those authorities featured in our report for their contributions.
