Who we are
Fair4All Finance has been founded to support the financial wellbeing of the most vulnerable people in society. Our ambition is to increase access to fair, affordable and appropriate financial products and services.
We are funded by dormant assets money for financial inclusion.
We are currently working on our first strategy, which will be in place by autumn 2019. Our first focus area is improving access to affordable credit. We hope to build capacity in the affordable credit sector with a combination of financial support, capability development and ecosystem development programmes.
Over 3 million people access high cost credit in the UK and more than 16m people have less than £100 in savings.
Our challenge is to increase access to fair financial products and services to help vulnerable people meet their day to day financial needs, absorb shocks and smooth incomes.
We will work collaboratively with a range of groups who are already active across the financial inclusion and financial services sectors.
- Government and financial inclusion regulators
- Financial inclusion advocates & researchers
- Financial guidance and debt advice providers
- Affordable credit providers
- Credit reference agencies
- Commercial lenders
- Housing associations
- Technology for good providers
- Insurance industry
