Recent reports from Which? show that rural communities are disproportionately affected by cuts to the UK's cash machine network.

The new fund, launched by UK ATM network Link and UK Finance, will give members of the public the chance to apply for a free ATM machine.

 Consumers can apply to the Community Access To Cash Delivery Fund through their MP, local council, or directly from Link. Qualifying criteria includes distance to nearest free ATM, availability of a Post Office, site security and a suitable location.
