WEA East Midlands Region is a named delivery partner in a Money Advice Project based in Leicester. The project, led by VISTA, and funded through the Money Advice Service, will explore what works best in terms of equipping older people with financial capabilities in later life. In particular project work will test the hypothesis that helping older people to manage their finances through key life events and plan ahead for later life is as much about emotional, psychological and behavioural drivers as it is about having financial knowledge. This will include workshop sessions that enable older people to consider what they want from the rest of their retirement, helping them to address issues that mitigate against good financial planning, for example health barriers, social isolation or poverty, linking people into personal and social networks to help with peer learning, and use of digital technology.
