LightningAid in lightning speed

Thousands of charities having been set up to help the millions of people across the UK in need of critical financial aid, but there was an overriding issue facing every single one – how to distribute payment relief at a scale and speed that has never been needed before.

In a truly inspiring FinTech community effort led by Railsbank, LightiningAid was created in just 8 days to step up to this life-changing challenge. LightningAid is a new financial inclusion initiative enabling Government departments, NGOs and community groups to distribute financial support directly to those in need across the country.
