Call for vulnerable people to take back financial control

Majority who needed help managing money during COVID lockdown have not taken back control

 

Two thirds of people who needed help from others to manage their money during the COVID-19 lockdown have not taken back control of their own finances.

This is according to new research commissioned by Banking & Payments Federation Ireland (BPFI) together with Safeguarding Ireland and published today.

BPFI and Safeguarding Ireland recommend that, while following public health guidelines, people should take back and keep control of their own money as much as possible – in order to combat financial abuse.
