NI Financial Capability Strategy Consultation

The Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment (DETI) is seeking your views on a Financial Capability Strategy for Northern Ireland Consumers.

Financial Capability is about having the skills and confidence to manage money effectively, and being able to access support and advice on money management issues when required.

The Strategy is one of a series of Executive interventions designed to break the cycle of deprivation, educational under- achievement, and economic disengagement, and to improve the health and well being of our population.
