Sessional Webinar: Money, Knowledge and Power

Monday 14 September 2020 17:30 - 18:30

Financial literacy is a core life skill for participating in modern society. But how many of us have been educated about money; the importance of budgeting and saving for a rainy day; how bank accounts and debt works; and when it makes sense to save for a pension? Our brief research to date indicates a shockingly low level of financial literacy in the general population. In this free to view webinar (£35 for non-members) we suggest some key principles for financial literacy, additional protections for vulnerable consumers and will also consider methods and tools to allow the public to access much-needed support and advice.
