Welcome to the consultation survey on the draft Financial Inclusion Strategy (FIS) for Tower Hamlets.

Local partners in the Financially Inclusive Tower Hamlets Network (FITH),including the council, NHS, housing associations, community and voluntary groups, would like all local people and organisations to help inform a new Financial Inclusion Strategy for the borough.

Addressing a range of areas, including debt and money management, the strategy outlines the borough's approach to improving financial inclusion provision over the next few years.

The strategy aims to achieve a financially inclusive Tower Hamlets where residents have access to a comprehensive range of appropriate financial and money advice services, as well as the knowledge, skills and confidence to maximise their own financial well-being.

To take part in the consultation, please read the full strategy or summary of the strategy and complete this short online survey.

The consultation will close on 28 February 2013.
