Our listening phase and National Strategy
The vision of the Money and Pensions Service is everyone making the most of their money and pensions. But we can’t do this alone. It must be a collective effort delivered through collaboration across the sector and industry.
So to get the ball rolling, between April and June 2019 we will be holding a series of listening events in cities across the UK to gather your views as part of our three-month listening phase.
This is an opportunity to feed in your hopes, aspirations and ambitions as we start to develop our National Strategy and three-year corporate plan.
We plan to launch both the National Strategy and corporate plan by the end of November 2019.
The listening events will be hosted by either our chief executive John Govett, or our chair Sir Hector Sants.
Who are the listening events for
We want to hear from:
- major suppliers and financial services stakeholders
- business groups
- small businesses
- local government
- delivery partners
- front-line charities
- local practitioners.
We are also particularly keen to hear from people and organisations who have not worked with us before.
Helpful reading if you are planning to attend one of our listening events
As a way of focussing discussions during the listening events on the many dimensions of money and pensions, we’ve created two “listening” documents to summarise what we know and our view of the key challenges.
We encourage all event attendees to read our Listening Document Executive Summary. The separate Executive Summary gives you a quick and visual way into the full Listening Document, with links to its greater detail.
The Listening Document is also available in its entirety below. Please use it for further reading or if you’d like to focus on a chapter in a particular area that interests you, such as financial education in schools or debt advice.
We have also published a lessons-learned document from the Financial Capability Board looking back at the first three years of work on the Financial Capability Strategy for the UK. This will be of interest if you have previously been involved in that work.
