What is Talk Money Week?

Talk Money Week is an annual public awareness campaign to get the nation having conversations about money. The week is an opportunity for you to open up and have conversations about money which is especially hard at the moment with the cost of living crisis. Talk Money Week will be taking place from 7 to 11 November 2022 and this year’s theme will focus on ‘credit’ and the ‘cost of living’ crisis. We want to help you understand how credit works, demystify some of the jargon, build your understanding of credit products, understand how credit scoring works and hints and tips to help you manage your money. We want to encourage you to talk about any aspect of money.

So why is it good to talk about money?

Research shows that people who talk about money:

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