Financial Capability Week is happening 13-19 November 2017. Organised as part of the Financial Capability Strategy for the UK, it celebrates work underway to improve financial capability and financial wellbeing. Now in its second year, the theme this year is to get more people talking about money in their workplaces, communities, and across social media with #TalkMoney.

As part of the week, the Money Advice Service is also hosting the Talk Money Conference, bringing together policy makers, practitioners, employers and all those interested in working together to improve financial capability across the UK. The Conference will be chaired by MALG Chair Liz Barclay, with a keynote address from Guy Opperman, Minister for Pensions and Financial Inclusion, and will feature over 30 partner organisations. The programme will feature sessions on a wide range of topics, from ethical lending to fintech and money in the workplace, as well as tailored workshops for practioners delivering financial capability support.
