Save cash in the UK, no to an entirely cashless society

Don't allow the UK to become an entirely cashless society. Ensure that every business still accepts cash as a form of payment.

Why is this important?

The UK is sleepwalking into becoming an entirely cashless society, some shops and venues already refuse to accept cash as a form of payment.

Tapping your card, or using an app is incredibly convenient and helpful for many of us, but not everyone has easy access to smartphones and banking. A move to an entirely cashless society would exclude many people particularly older people or those without homes.

Government and businesses should work together to ensure that cash is always accepted as a form of payment, to prevent a two tier society.
