The Scottish Financial Capability Week will take place from 13-17 November 2017 aiming to raise awareness about the stubbornly low levels of financial capability across Scotland, and encourage organisations to work together to address this issue and help people make the most of their money.


Organisations including Scottish Government, Money Advice Scotland, the Improvement Service, COSLA, Citizens Advice Scotland, the Money Advice Service and credit unions across Scotland are organising events to encourage people to talk about money, under the hashtag #talkmoneyscotland


Throughout Financial Capability Week, organisations across Scotland will celebrate the ways that they are helping people to develop financial skills and knowledge, change their money mindset and working to ensure there is an inclusive and accessible services. They will be sharing their latest insight, getting together to learn from one another and find new and better ways to change lives through better money management and celebrate successes over the last year.


We want to invite you to take part and share the work that you are doing, hold events and get people talking about money. Get in touch with the Improvement Service’s Money Advice Outcomes Project and chat with Sandra Sankey, Project Manager (sandra.sankey@improvementservice.org.uk,  07771 958964) should you require more information.
