Summary :

Over the past four years a Community Banking Partnership (CBP) approach has been co-developed by some of Britain’s most innovative players in community finance. Robustly designed Community Banking Partnerships are creating financial inclusion, alleviating debt problems, preventing a reoccurrence of debt, and showing that there can be a net gain to the partners from investing in the process. The success of this financial inclusion model is leading to a growing interest in CBP from all regions of England and from many areas of Wales and Scotland as well.
