The Money Charity is the UK’s financial capability charity, helping people across the UK to understand their finances, stay on top of their money, and lead happier lives as a result. We are proud to support their work delivering financial wellbeing education and capability in a number of ways:
The Student Money Manual
A cornerstone of our partnership with The Money Charity is our sponsorship of The Student Money Manual - the essential guide to student finance and managing money at university. Each year The Student Money Manual reaches thousands of young people, equipping them with the skills, confidence and knowledge to manage their money well. Our sponsorship is enabling The Student Money Manual to be provided free of charge to students.
The Money Charity’s volunteer programme connects volunteers from the financial sector with workplace and community programmes to deliver financial education workshops. We provide funding for the workshops and our staff give their time and expertise to support and deliver them across the UK.
Financial Wellbeing Workshops
The Money Charity’s financial wellbeing workshops are offered as a key part of our communications consulting packages to businesses, and help to build invaluable skills, attitudes and behaviours to help employees manage money well.

We believe that everyone should have access to financial education, and are proud to sponsor the 2019-20 edition of The Student Money Manual - the essential guide to student finance and managing money at university.
The guide is aimed mainly at post-16/college students considering going to uni as well as first-year students, but is relevant for all undergraduates. It covers everything from budgeting to student finance and fees to making your money stretch further as a student.

The Pensions Advisory Service
For a number of years Punter Southall Aspire employees have been volunteering with The Pension Advisory Service who offer free and impartial guidance to people with workplace and personal pensions. Our pension specialist employees help support The Pension Advisory Service by answering telephone, website and written queries through the service from the general public.
The Pensions Ombudsman
"Outside of my role as a Senior Associate at Punter Southall Aspire, I am a Pensions Ombudsman volunteer adviser and have been since July 2017. I help members of the public who are parties to a complaint identify and agree resolutions. I absolutely love helping people, that’s just my nature so this suits me perfectly. I hosted The Pensions Ombudsman (TPO) volunteer adviser workshop at our striking new office at St Andrews Square. This is the second workshop to be held in the Punter Southall Aspire offices."
Nikki Welsh, Senior Associate, Punter Southall Aspire
