Wales Financial Capability Week November 2017
The Wales Financial Capability Week will be taking place from 13th to 17th November 2017. Working together, organisations such as the Welsh Government, Older People’s Commissioner’s Office, Wales Cooperative Centre, Credit Unions across Wales, Citizens Advice Cymru and the Money Advice Service are organising events across Wales to encourage people to talk about money, under the hashtag #talkmoneywales.
Wales Financial Capability Week will bring together a variety of organisations and policy makers from across Wales. It will aim to raise awareness about the low levels of financial capability across Wales and encourage organisations to work together to address this issue and help people make the most of their money.
Throughout FinCap Week organisations across Wales will celebrate the ways that they are helping people to develop financial skills and knowledge, change their money mindset and working to ensure there is an inclusive and accessible services. They’ll be sharing their latest insight, getting together to learn from one another and find new and better ways to change lives through better money management and celebrate successes over the last year.
The week will be communicated by themes, e.g. Children and Young People.
