25 million people across the UK rely on cash. Yet bank branches and cashpoints are closing at an alarming rate, leaving people struggling to access the cash they rely on.
People like Katie, who use cash to budget:
'I got into £53k of debt buying a house and starting a family, but using and budgeting with cash cleared it all. For a long time, I used cash to pay for everything and it entirely changed how I used and thought about money – you can't go overdrawn with something that's physically in your purse.'
We're calling on the government to set up a regulator to protect our access to cash and make sure nobody is left behind.
Sign our petition and demand action to protect our freedom to pay with cash for as long as people need.
