New review of the Alternatives to cash during COVID-19

Following reports of older people expressing fears around what to do when they run out of cash and concerns around how to pay for items delivered by volunteers, forcing some to go to cash points or doing shopping themselves, Ambition for Ageing carried out a time-limited review of available alternatives to cash.
