Fraud Awareness Session with Danske Bank

Wednesday 15th of June at 11am

The Money Guiders NI Network welcomes Danske Bank for a session on Fraud Awareness. Fraud has reached epidemic levels and is now the crime that adults are most likely to suffer in the UK. The ‘typical’ fraud victim is aged 25-54 and more likely to be in a professional occupation. The scale of this crime means that you can’t stop yourself from being a target, but you can stop yourself from being a victim. In this session we will use audio and visual aids to help you understand the ways fraudsters will target you and your family and friends. We will also provide the simple, yet effective ways you can protect yourself.

Plain Numbers - Improving Communications About Money

Thursday 30th of June at 11:30am

We are excited to be joined by Plain Numbers on the 30th of June at 11:30am for a Money Guiders Network UK-wide Event. Plain Numbers are on a mission to make sure numbers are communicated in a way that people can understand and help people make informed decisions. The objective of the sessions is to support strong transferable skills within money guidance practitioners across the UK.

This is essential in helping practitioners and consumers navigate all communications about money, including those who access money guidance.

We hope you can join us for the 40-minute session where Ben Perkins (Head of Operations) will share insights from the work of Plain Numbers. The session will cover:

  • The scale of poor numeracy in the UK
  • Maths anxiety
  • How people who need money guidance might be impacted by their numeracy skills or confidence
  • The evidence around poor consumer comprehension, including the gap between perceived comprehension and actual comprehension and how this impacts the money guidance and advice sector.
  • Examples of communicating in Plain Numbers and the difference it makes
  • Some key principles to think about when communicating numbers

The session aims to give you an awareness of a key vulnerabilities and some crucial principles to remember when you are navigating number heavy communications with clients.
