P-06-1335 Welsh Government should take steps to ensure vulnerable adults without bank cards can pay with cash
This petition was submitted by Mencap Cymru, having collected 1,926 signatures online and 578 signatures on paper, making for a total of 2,504 signatures.
Text of Petition:
Mencap Cymru is concerned that the move to a cashless society will leave behind disabled people who cannot have access to electronic forms of payment.
In recent months people with a learning disability have been unable to pay for goods and services and have had to leave businesses empty-handed. Support workers are not permitted to use their own cards, and nor should they be.
This means they do not have equal access to goods and services with many businesses and organisations moving to cashless transactions.
