Talk Money Week

Talk Money Week is an annual campaign, run by The Money and Pensions Service, to get the nation talking about money. This year the theme was ‘money secrets’, focusing on what money issues people are afraid to discuss.

This can be very common when managing increased winter finances, and also wanting to join the festivities and treat loved ones over Christmas.

Talking about money helps

Katie Walley, Senior Director at Asda Money commented, “During Talk Money Week, Asda Money wanted to help break these taboo subjects. We understand that many people, including some of our customers, will face financial difficulties this winter due to current economic events.”

Andy Shaw, Debt Advice Policy Officer at StepChange also commented “Whether it’s sharing budgeting tips with friends, or discussing household bills with someone, your finances starts with being able to talk about them.
