Project overview

In response to the findings from the AHRC project 'FinCris: Responsibilities, Ethics and the Financial Crisis', our research on 'responsible lending and borrowing' undertook a follow-on project to explore innovative impactful ways for the research findings to encourage greater responsible lending and borrowing.

Project objectives

The key objective was to improve responsible lending and borrowing. In particular, access to affordable credit for low and moderate income communities. We achieved this through engaging with UK Credit Unions to develop innovative and creative strategies for implementing responsible lending practices and products.
