Supporting people’s money management

The Money Advice Service provide guidance across a wide range of money matters, including a number of useful tools and calculators to help people manage their money. Their focus is on supporting people who can benefit the most from their help or who are going through significant life events – such as saving for a home, dealing with the breakdown of a long-term relationship, or starting a family.

They also work with a wide range of other organisations to make thier content available to their customers, clients, members, followers or employees. This includes producing and distributing a number of printed guides on specific subjects, which are also available for download. The service is available 24 hours a day via their website and five days a week by telephone on 0800 138 7777 (calls are free).

Helping people tackle problem debt

The Money Advice Service aim to help people avoid getting into unmanageable debt but, for those who do, they fund the provision of free, high-quality debt advice, delivered by partners across the UK. The Money Advice Service is the largest single funder of debt advice in the UK.

They are also responsible for driving higher-quality and more consistent debt advice services across the UK – including those that they do not fund directly. The aim is to make sure people get the help they need to deal with their creditors and reduce their debt, and also the support to manage their money and build their financial resilience so they are less likely to get into difficulties.

Driving improved financial capability

Financial capability is vital to people’s lives, helping them manage life’s financial ups and downs and prepare for the future.

As the statutory body responsible for enhancing public understanding of financial matters, the Money Advice Service led the work of a wide range of organisations across the public, private and voluntary sectors to develop a new Financial Capability Strategy for the UK.

The Strategy sets out a ten-year plan to address not just people’s skills and knowledge around money management but also the attitudes and motivations that hold them back, and their access to products and services.
