Hello, hi, welcome!

This year’s National Conversation Week is all about talking finances.

Why?

Talking about our money (or lack of it) is almost as taboo as talking about politics.

When we surveyed 1,000 people in the UK, we found that finance is one of the nation’s biggest worries with nearly 40% of people admitting that finance worries them more than anything else in their lives.  However, worryingly only half of people said they would actually seek professional advice.

What’s going on UK?

Our finances are something that massively influence our lives, and, conversations are critical to getting them in the best shape they can be – so why aren’t we discussing them?

It could be down to several reasons – maybe a lack of knowledge, confusing jargon, or even simply being embarrassed to ask for help?

Well, during National Conversation Week we want to change that!

This year, we’re encouraging everyone in the UK to be more open when it comes to their finances. We’re here to help people learn more about managing their personal finance in the here and now, as well as highlighting what financial topics they need to be discussing throughout every life stage, so that they can skip happily into a healthy financial future.

Sound like something you want to be part of? Great! Here’s how you can get involved.
