Talk Money Week: 6–10 November 2023

Even with an increase in cost of living-related news, we know it can be hard to talk about money. Every year we host Talk Money Week to encourage people to open up about their finances.

Discover how to get involved in Talk Money Week, regardless of the sector or size of your organisation, and find guides on how to Talk Money with your friends, family or children.

What is Talk Money Week?

The week is an opportunity for everyone to get involved with events and activities across the UK which help people have more open conversations about their money – from pocket money to pensions – and continue these conversations year-round.

We encourage you to use the week as an opportunity to talk about any aspect of money.

Why Talk Money

As we recover from the Covid-19 pandemic and with current cost-of-living pressures, it’s more important than ever that we get support for money worries.

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.

Building money conversations into our everyday lives also helps us build financial confidence and resilience to face whatever the future throws at us.

Do One Thing

This year, we’re asking stakeholders, partners, organisations and businesses all over the UK to encourage their own audiences to Do One Thing that could help improve their financial wellbeing – and to make a noise about it, to inspire others to do the same.

It doesn’t have to be huge. In fact, it could be as simple as asking them to check the address on their pension, talk to a child about pocket money or use one of the free tools or calculatorsOpens in a new window on the MoneyHelper website.

If you want to talk about financial education – great. Pensions more your thing? Go ahead. All that matters is that we get people talking about money, together.

Make it happen
  1. Decide on your ‘one thing’
  2. Tell everyone about it
  3. Encourage others to do the same!
