Dr Nick Henry and Dr Paul Sissons have won a contract with Big Society Capital, Citi Bank, Community Investment Coalition and Unity Trust Bank to map and analyse the newly released UK data on bank lending to individuals and businesses. The evidence base generated will form part of autumn 2014 party conference activity around the high profile issue of ‘access to fair finance’ including pay day lending and bank rejections of SMEs. Based at Coventry the project will also include inputs from Professor Mike Coombes and Professor Jane Pollard at CURDS, Newcastle University.
