Even with an increase in cost of living-related news, we know it can be hard to talk about money, so every year we host Talk Money Week to encourage people to open up about their finances. Discover how to get involved in Talk Money Week, regardless of the sector or size of your organisation, and find guides on how to Talk Money with others.
Talk Money Week will be taking place from 6–10 November 2023.
What is Talk Money Week?
Each November we encourage everyone to come together for Talk Money Week, to start money conversations in workplaces, family and friendship groups, schools, and wider communities.
The week is an opportunity for everyone to get involved with events and activities across the UK which help people have more open conversations about their money – from pocket money to pensions – and continue these conversations year-round.
However, we encourage you to use the week as an opportunity to talk about any aspect of money.
Why Talk Money
Despite the current spotlight on household finances, people find it difficult to open up about money and pensions worries, and don’t access the expert help available to help them find their way forward.
Research shows that people who talk about money:
- make better and less risky financial decisions
- have stronger personal relationships
- help their children form good lifetime money habits
- feel less stressed or anxious and more in control.
Building money conversations into our everyday lives also helps us build financial confidence and resilience to face whatever the future throws at us.

Do One Thing
This Talk Money Week we’re spreading a simple message: Do One Thing.
Ask the people you support or employ to ‘do one thing’ to boost their financial wellbeing – and even better, to share what they’re doing with others, whether that’s via social media, conversations with friends and family, or in any other way.
It doesn’t have to be big. It could be as simple as checking their address is up to date on their pensions, talking to a child about pocket money or using the MoneyHelper benefits calculator to check they’re not missing out on any income they could be claiming.
Make it happen:
1. Decide on your ‘one thing’
2. Tell everyone about it
3. Encourage others to do the same!
Talk about money in your organisation
Use our communications resources to help you kickstart a conversation in any walk of life, including:
- in your workplace
- with your customers across a range of sectors
- in education
- at home with friends and family
Talk about money in school
This dedicated toolkit for schools includes information and resources to help you promote the financial wellbeing of your pupils and students, during Talk Money Week and beyond.
Talk about money with friends and family
If it’s not safe to talk
If your partner or family controls access to your money, or runs up debts in your name, it’s financial abuse. But there’s no need to struggle on alone.
