Event: Learning from the What Works Fund, 23 October 2018

Friday 28 September 2018

In 2016 the Money Advice Service launched the What Works Fund: specifically designed to build, gather and strengthen evidence of what works to improve financial capability in the UK.

In the past two years this innovative programme has given grants totalling around £11.9M to 65 projects so that they can test and pilot potential new financial capability solutions, scale up interventions and evaluate existing projects across the country.

We are now ready to report on the findings from the programme, and discuss what they mean for improving the financial capability for people across the UK in the future.

The findings will be launched on Tuesday 23 October 2018 at the British Library Knowledge Centre: a world-class centre of learning situated between King’s Cross St Pancras Station and Euston Station in London.

At the event we will be looking in more detail at the results of the projects, deep diving into some of the emerging themes and exploring the implications for our understanding about what works to improve people’s financial capability.
