I have seen first-hand the transformational effect that good money management can have on people across all life stages and different financial circumstances, and I am passionate about helping as many people as possible acquire these life skills. I look forward to building on the great work that the Money Advice Service - and its many partners - has already done to make a positive impact on UK financial capability.”
