Event description

Description

Conservatives Party Conference 2017


Financial capability levels in the UK are stubbornly low. Four in ten adults are not in control of their finances, one in five cannot read a bank statement and four in ten have less than £500 in savings. When people are experiencing mental health difficulties, dealing with their money can become even more challenging, and too often money problems and mental health issues can go hand in hand. The majority of clients who have received debt advice from Money Advice Service partners – 52% - also have a diagnosed mental health condition.

In the run-up to Financial Capability Week 2017, join representatives from the Money Advice Trust, Citizens’ Advice, StepChange, the Money and Mental Health Policy Institute and the Money Advice Service to look at ways in which local authorities, services and employers can work together with people experiencing mental health problems to help them avoid financial difficulty.


Chair:

Anoosh Chakelian - New Statesman Senior Writer


Speakers:

Charles Counsell - Chief Executive, Money Advice Service

Joanna Elson OBE - Chief Executive, Money Advice Trust

Anna Hall - Head of Money Advice, Citizen's Advice

Mike O'Connor - Chief Executive, Stepchange
