Working in partnership

The Money Advice Trust is a charity which places partnership working at the core of everything it does.

The Trust works with many organisations that have a role to play in the debt and credit environment, including

When required the Trust brings all three of these sectors together in order to find suitable ways of helping people tackle their debts and manage their money wisely. A key example of this is our work in developing the Common Financial Statement.  The Trust has a partnership board which draws upon the expertise and experience of the organisations we work with to help govern the direction of the charity’s work.



 As part of the Trust's commitment to partnership working it chairs a Partnership Board which meets twice a year.

The Trust works closely with a number of trade associations to help inform its work. Members of the British Bankers' Association (BBA), Building Societies Association, Credit Services Association, Energy UK and the Finance and Leasing Association (FLA) sit on the Trust's Funding Model Working Party.
