Tackling financial exclusion through an integrated approach in Australia: a case study of pro bono support

Around the world, financial exclusion is placing people and families at risk of financial hardship and costing economies. To combat financial exclusion, the Australian government has partnered with Good Shepherd Microfinance, the Centre for Social Impact, and Ernst and Young to develop and implement Australia’s first Financial Inclusion Action Plan (FIAP). To date, 33 organisations, including Ashurst as the first law firm to sign up, have committed to tackling financial exclusion together through efforts such as creating more accessible products and services, improving capability-building, delivering pro bono legal services and enhancing economic participation and resources.
