We are seeing increasing numbers of local bank branches closing around the country and it seems the future of free ATMs now also hangs in the balance. Carers face being drawn into helping older people with basic access to physical cash if they are reluctant or unable to bank online, an uncomfortable situation for both parties.
Yet the Access to Cash review, published March 2019, concluded that we are "not ready" to go cashless and called for older or vulnerable consumers to be protected.
Which? is campaigning to protect free ATMs and our Director Hilary Cooper, continues to work to influence national policy on access to cash. Read Hilary's blog for the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing.
