Dormant Assets Scheme consultation vital to securing long term funding for financial inclusion

The Government’s dormant assets consultation is a key opportunity in the fight against financial exclusion – an ongoing and growing problem for millions of families across the country.

With the impact of the pandemic and the cost of living crisis, it’s more important than ever that people have access to fair financial products and services that support their wellbeing and resilience.

Our dormant assets funding has already provided people across the country with a stepping stone to financial resilience, improved their physical and mental health and enabled them to play a full part in their communities. It’s vital this work continues.

An expanded Dormant Assets Scheme offers the chance to continue delivering long term funding to increase financial inclusion and improve the lives of millions of people in vulnerable circumstances.

If you share our vision for a fairer financial future, please respond to the consultation. It’s open until 23:45 on Sunday 9 October 2022 and every response counts.
