This report is the third in a series of five annual monitoring reports commissioned by the Friends Provident Foundation to measure changing levels of financial inclusion in Britain from 2013–2017. The report defines financial inclusion as follows: 1) A secure income which meets a minimum standard. 2) Access to appropriate and well-regulated financial services, particularly transactional bank accounts, savings accounts, affordable credit, pensions and insurance products. 3) Access to free and appropriate advice and education, particularly for those with debt problems.
