Does increasing the digital skills of older people increase their financial capability?
The What Works Funding Programme aims to build an evidence base of types of interventions that make a measurable impact on older people’s financial capability. We are supporting a charity delivering digital inclusion sessions for older people in rural locations.
We will be measuring whether the courses are (1) increasing older people’s confidence in managing their money and/or (2) increasing their financial capability by being able to maximise their income and its use. The findings of the study will be shared with stakeholders across Government, the financial services, the voluntary and community sector and beyond.
