Purpose of the consultation

This consultation seeks the views of all interested parties to help inform the content of my proposed Bill. The Financial Education and Inclusion (Wales) Bill would seek to increase prosperity in Wales by improving the financial education and literacy of our citizens. My proposals fall into two broad categories:

  • Improving financial capability amongst school-age children and young people by making it a legal requirement that financial education is included in the school curriculum;
  • Strengthening the role of local authorities in helping people avoid falling into financial difficulty, by requiring local authorities to adopt a financial inclusion strategy to promote financial literacy and address issues around financial inclusion.

I also propose to include provisions in the Bill relating to internet access in public libraries; the financial education of looked-after children; and the signposting of information about financial management.



If you don’t have time to give us your thoughts in writing, but would still like to contribute to the consultation, you can complete this questionnaire which is made up of 13 multiple choice questions, spread over six pages and should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.
