Money Advice Service to develop a practitioner framework for those delivering money matters support

10 Feb 2017

The Money Advice Service are researching the needs and support available for practitioners and organisations who help people with their money matters.

The Learning & Work Institute, on behalf of the MAS are asking practitioners in money matters  to help shape what quality financial capability support should look like and the support practitioners and their organisations need to help the people they work with use or manage their money and improve their financial wellbeing.

To take part in the research, please complete the survey.  It should take around 10 minutes to complete.

The survey closes on 10th March (at midnight).

Background to the research

This work is being carried out as part of the What Works Fund Stream B, which aims to enhance the capacity and expertise of practitioners providing financial capability support in their communities.

The Work Works Stream B fund has brought together a ‘Capacity-Building Consortium’ to help MAS and the wider not-for-profit sector develop evidence-based solutions that can boost practitioner confidence and competence. Working with the Learning & Work Institute, the Consortium is conducting research to understand the types of people and organisations who help others with their money matters. The outcome of this research will be a practitioner framework that encourages quality financial capability support.

The survey can be completed here.
