Our guide to navigating uncertainty and growing community finance

The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic makes transforming affordable credit more important than ever. As we start 2021 and continue to grapple with the challenges this year is presenting, we all need to go beyond emergency responses and think about the future.

We know that’s not as easy as it sounds so we’re pleased to launch our Navigating uncertainty guide for community finance providers. The guide comes in two parts and is based on the work we did last year on our own scenario planning and strategy.

  1. Navigating uncertainty – a scenario planning toolkit and framework to help community finance providers work with their boards and teams to manage during difficult periods and seize the opportunity to further transform their business
  2. How community finance and Fair4All Finance can work together – to scale the provision of affordable credit, including the specific areas we’re focusing our resources on to do this

We shared the guide last week ahead of our webinar with over 80 community finance providers. You can catch up on a recording of the session if you didn’t get the chance to join us. And here’s a summary of the questions and answers from the call.

Please do drop us a line if you have any questions, thoughts or ideas on our guide and webinar. Our team email is hello@fair4allfinance.org.uk.

We hope these tools prove useful as together we embark on the challenges of the year ahead. We’re looking forward to working with as many community finance providers as possible to collectively grow the provision of affordable credit.
