Mastercard joins ‘Leave Nobody in the Dark’ campaign

Mastercard has joined a group working to support underbanked people.  

In Brief:    

  • Leave Nobody in the Dark is aimed at digitally and financially excluded people in the UK. 

  • The campaign also includes the Good Things Foundation, Joseph Rowntree Foundation, Aple Collective and Clean Slate Training & Employment CIC.  

  • It’s been set up to support those living in poverty who will have been left more vulnerable by the impact of Covid-19.  

 What does this mean?  

It’s estimated that just under 12mn people in the UK “lack basic digital skills” and almost 2mn households have no internet access. A new self-help portal will be developed to help people gain confidence using digital services and gain support in managing their money.
