Forum members

Northern Ireland forum

The Northern Ireland forum was set up in 2014, to act in an advisory capacity to the Money Advice Service, informing the organisation on key issues facing people in Northern Ireland and advising on the impact of our plans on people.

The current members of the NI forum have agreed to widen the remit of the group to include developing a work-plan to add to the financial capability landscape in NI in recognition of the work the NI Executive is leading on through the draft NI Executive Financial Capability strategy as well as feeding into the development of the UK Strategy.

  • Advice NI

  • Bank of Ireland
