Following listening events in Northern Ireland and across the UK, The Money and Pensions Service (MaPS) launched the UK Strategy for Financial Wellbeing at the start of 2020. The Strategy is designed to bring partners together to transform the country’s financial wellbeing in a decade.
UK Strategy for Financial Wellbeing
Since then, MaPS has been coordinating proposals for a Delivery Plan for Northern Ireland, with input from over 90 stakeholders.
The Northern Ireland Delivery Plan considers the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and how we can work together to achieve long term and lasting change for individuals, communities, business and the economy in Northern Ireland. The Delivery Plan contains further detail on specific priorities in Northern Ireland for the next 24-36 months. It lists the key commitments and most immediate priorities identified.
A progress report on these activities will be produced and updated every six months and will work to record the activity stakeholders are delivering to contribute to these prioritised activities in Northern Ireland and the UK.
The plans are for you if you are interested in driving positive changes to people’s personal finances, deliver programmes, services or support customers with their money, and if you want to learn more about how your organisation can play its part delivering stronger financial wellbeing outcomes for people across Northern Ireland.
