St Albans Community Bank is encouraging people in Hertfordshire to ‘do one thing’ to improve their financial wellbeing, during Talk Money Week 2023 (6-10 November).
The week is an initiative of the UK’s official money guidance organisation, the Money and Pensions Service (MaPS), and this year Talk Money Week’s theme is ‘do one thing’.
St Albans Community Bank is joining MaPS in encouraging our community to take action, and get the UK talking about money.
Here are some ideas for what that one thing could be. Remember, this doesn’t have to be big, and it doesn’t have to be only one thing, if you feel inspired to do more:
Isabel Dolan, Chair of St Albans Community Bank, said: “Thinking and talking about money can be daunting, especially right now. That’s why we’re promoting Talk Money Week’s ‘do one thing’ campaign – if you focus on just taking one step towards improving your financial wellbeing, then it makes it even easier to take the next steps. Plus, by shouting about it on social media or talking to friends or colleagues about it, you’ll be helping make sure that as a society we are all a bit more open and able to talk about money and finances, which is a really important”.
