Save Fawkner Local Comm Bank Branch

This campaign has ended.

Financial elder abuse is on the rise and this is in part due to people without internet access or skills relying on others to help them with banking and finances.

Fawkner has higher than average people without internet access (24.7%), people who speak a language other than english, people with disability and people over 80.

It also has lower than average car ownership and household income and being able to do ones own banking in their local community is important to many people.

The Commonwealth Bank is planning to close the Fawkner Branch on the 26th May.

We ask the Commonwealth Bank to prioritise the needs of their customers over their profits.

Why is this important?
