Talk Money Week 6-10 November 2023
Every year, we encourage staff to have more open conversations about their money through the Talk Money Week campaign. The week gives everyone a great opportunity to join, start or lead conversations about money.
This year’s theme focuses on a simple call to action: do one thing. It doesn't have to be huge. It could be as simple as tracking down a lost pension or using one of the free tools or calculators on the Money Helper website.
The intention of Talk Money Week
For many, taking the step to start talking is the first challenge to overcome when it comes to money.
Talk Money Week provides a platform to have a conversation about money between families and friends, at work or school or any other part of life. The aim is to empower people who may be feeling the pinch, struggling with bills or worried about the future, to find a way forward.
The university’s staff EAP provider VIVUP offers confidential debt advice through their external partner Angel Advice. You can find more information about the service here.
Support for Students
If you are working with students who are experiencing financial hardships, remind them that the university’s Money Support Unit are here to offer advice and guidance.
