Taking the fear out of money
Four out of ten adults do not feel in control of their finances and one in five cannot read a bank statement according to The Financial Capability Strategy for the UK, 2015.
Advice and information isn’t enough for the 19 million families who feel that their approach to budgeting doesn’t work.
“I was in so much debt, I couldn’t open the door, I was so afraid” one mother we worked with summed up the psychological side of financial worry.
The Financial Capability Strategy concludes that unpacking the motivations and attitudes tied up in finances is key to managing money well.
This holistic approach to finances is exactly what we've championed at our pioneering financial education project Made of Money since 2005.
People get put off at the mention of money because it’s such a big, worrying issue. It seems so scarY.
