To Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak
Why is this important?Thousands of bank branches and ATMs are disappearing from high streets across the UK. For many, losing their local bank isn’t just an inconvenience. Elderly people, rural communities and people without access to the internet are being cut off from vital banking services - and easy access to their own money.
But we have a chance to reverse this trend - and keep these important services open: the government has launched a consultation on how to protect our access to cash. It could include new rules to make it harder for banks to close branches if it cuts people off from services. And they’re asking the public to have their say.
But you can bet that banks who want to put cost cutting before the communities they serve will be feeding in too. So that's where we come in. If thousands of us sign a huge petition asking the government to put in place legal protections to make sure we keep our access to banking, sending a powerful message - and drowning out those who want otherwise.
Will you chip in?
Thank you for signing the petition. Now, will you chip in to make sure we can move fast to win campaigns like this one to make sure people across the country don't lose access to face to face banking? You can make a secure donation here:
