Help shape the Money Guiders programme

The Money and Pensions Service would value your input to improve the programme and are asking for feedback on how to make it even better.  

They would like to invite you to an online/telephone interview with a researcher from Ecorys, to share your views on the programme. The interview will take up to one hour.   

You can register your interest by emailing Maire at by Monday, 7 July 2023

After doing this, Maire will contact you to answer any questions you may have and schedule an interview. They are aiming to conduct interviews throughout July with both front-line practitioners who offer money guidance and leaders/manager who were involved in deciding that staff should take part in the Money Guiders programme.   

The information you share with the research team will remain confidential and anonymous and will only be used to improve the programme.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Roxana in the Money and Pensions Service at
