Chapter Two details the evolution of public policy responses to financial exclusion in the UK. Focusing particularly upon formal banking, savings, credit and financial literacy, it highlights the key initiatives initiated by the British state in conjunction with the financial services industry and third sector organisations. In so doing, the chapter highlights the key achievements and limitations of these endeavours in facilitating financial inclusion. The chapter then moves on to consider the varied impacts of these programmes upon migrant communities, highlighting the particular importance of nationality and immigration status in shaping access to financial inclusion programmes. The chapter concludes by considering the changing political and economic contexts within which current financial inclusion interventions are being shaped in the UK.
