Talk Money Week – November 2021

Talk Money Week – November 2021

 

People in the UK don’t talk about their money enough. Despite the COVID-19 crisis affecting finances, 9 in 10 UK adults – that’s 47 million people – don’t find it any easier to talk about money, or don’t even discuss it at all.

 

We want to celebrate Talk Money Week and focus on the fantastic work undertaken by delivery partners  – particularly through Action Towards Inclusion.

This  dynamic project offers support for adults trying to get into work but also helps with some of the real social challenges faced by participants.

We have three intervention partners who specialise in financial advice  – giving support to clients who may be facing real financial hardship or debt issues.

Craven & Harrogate Citizens Advice Bureau

Hull & East Riding Citizens Advice Bureau

The Yorkshire Energy Doctor

 

“The help and support I’ve had has been first class, and the direction and concise information been invaluable and shown me with the correct information with time you get a better understanding.”

Between them they have supported over  371  Action Towards Inclusion participants – offering great advice and support for free.

Research shows that people who talk about money:

  • make better and less risky financial decisions
  • have stronger personal relationships
  • help their children form good money habits for life
  • feel less stressed or anxious and more in control

 

“I’ve managing to cope and get on top of and sorted financial situation.   I’m no longer burying head in sand.”

A financially healthy nation is good for individuals, communities, business, and the economy – so let’s support  #TalkMoney this year!

Hi I’m Simon and I work as Marketing Manager for Better Connect.  I manage the overall marketing work, highlighting the impact of the ATI programme. 

The great part of my job is it allows me to meet really interesting people in lots of different walks of life and ask them to tell me their story. 

I’ve worked in the voluntary and charitable sector for over 20 years now in a number of different roles and think the sector represents what is great in Great Britain.
