Talk Money Week 9 – 15 November 2020 An initiative of the Money and Pensions Service, Talk Money Week is an annual campaign to get the nation talking about money, with a view to improving wellbeing in relation to financial matters. Talk Money Week aims to turn talking about money from being one of the UK’s least favourite topics into a common conversation. Talking openly about money is important for better health and wellbeing, particularly so following the outbreak of COVID-19. Stuart Miller, Customer Director at Newcastle Building Society, said: “Talking openly about money is vital for better health and wellbeing, and in light of the financial uncertainties many people face as a result of Covid-19, is more important than ever this year. We’re committed to supporting people across our region to make better financial decisions and help them on a journey to financial wellbeing. So we’re asking people across the region to start a conversation about their personal finances.” The Money and Pensions Service have put together a range of useful resources to help you have productive and useful conversations about money.
