Communities across Gedling borough that are finding it difficult to access cash can now request a free-to-use ATM for their area as part of a new scheme.
Link, which runs the UK’s largest network of ATM machines, has put aside £1m to fund the new scheme which will pay for ATMs in ‘cash deserts’. The money will pay for around 40-50 new machines across the UK.
Link have said applications will be weighed up on a case-by-case basis, depending on factors such as distance to the nearest free ATM, the availability of a nearby Post Office and machine site security. They also would look at whether a machine is available within a mile and any geographic challenges reaching it – like a steep hill. Where the application is successful, Link will fund the new ATM.
