When is Talk Money Week in Scotland?
Held from 9th to the 13th November, Talk Money Week aims to reduce the stigma around money by encouraging conversations among families, friends, neighbours, customers, colleagues and communities.
Talking openly about money can have a huge impact on managing money worries, and is important for our overall health and relationships. The impact of Covid-19 has made it more important than ever to start conversations about money to look after our financial wellbeing.
Talk Money Week is also an annual opportunity to celebrate the work organisations are doing to support the UK Strategy for Financial Wellbeing, launched by MaPS in January 2020, which has ambitious ten-year goals to help everyone make the most of their money and pensions.
Throughout the week there will be activity in Scotland to get more people talking about personal finance issues, and engaging with topics such as saving regularly, planning for retirement, dealing with debt, and teaching children and young people about managing money.
As part of the week, Trust Deed Scotland® will be running awareness activity across social media during Talk Money Week.
Trust Deed Scotland® commented:
“We encourage our clients to openly talk about their debts where possible. Even by sharing their experience with other clients on Trustpilot where other people with unaffordable debts can learn about their experiences in their own words.
Debt is still a great taboo and the stigma attached to have debt problems means many people attempt to struggle on alone.
We’d like to remind anyone who has a debt problem that they are not alone. We’re here for them. Our team of friendly, non-judgemental advisors can help individuals take steps to improve their lives for the better.”
Stephanie wrote recently about her experience with Trust Deed Scotland®
“Massive weight off our shoulders. We had built up alot of debt and maxed out our credit cards.
We were paying an extortionate amount every month and couldn’t keep our heads above water. I was nervous about calling but I’m so glad I did.
Spoke to a lovely lady called Danielle who made me feel so at ease.
She managed to sort us out on a 48 month payment plan and got a lot of our debt written off so we’re now paying less than half than we were and even managed to protect our car payments and keep our car.
It’s great to finally feel like we’re not fighting a losing battle and in a few short years, we will be debt free and have a fresh start.
Wish we had done it sooner.”
