The Financial Literacy and Inclusion Campaign (FLIC) was established as a charity by the Financial Times in 2021 to promote financial literacy where it is needed most to have significant, sustainable societal impact.
The charity works at the grassroots level while seeking to influence policy-making and building a platform to share compelling educational material tailored to the needs of three audiences that often overlap: young people; women, and marginalised communities.
Financial resilience can be boosted enormously by understanding how money works in everyday life. Our initial focus is on the UK, though we aim to expand globally over time.
The wealth gap in the UK and around the world has been widened by the Covid pandemic, exacerbating deprivation for many, adding to the challenges facing young people and weighing disproportionately on women.
We hope for a future where everyone feels capable of navigating the financial world, thanks to more financial education, simpler products and more straightforward information.
Our aim is to ensure that rigorous grounding in the basic building blocks of financial life management is offered to all young people, and that those who were excluded from this when growing up can later access comprehensive, simple and, where necessary, bespoke learning resources to build their knowledge and confidence.
Supported by the FT’s leading brand in financial journalism, a growing number of highly-skilled volunteers, and a high-calibre board of founding trustees, FLIC is working to build a world where learning to manage your money is as widespread as learning to ride a bicycle.
