Financial literacy - women understanding money

Money may not make you happy, but putting yourself in charge of your money can give you more choice about how you live your life. So it's worth taking the time to think about how you handle your money and what you can do to make the most of it.

You could ask yourself what's your relationship with money like?

Financial literacy is the ability to make informed judgements about money. People with good financial literacy skills make better decisions about their money, are able to plan for their future financial needs and are able to achieve their financial goals.
