National Financial Literacy Strategy

Closed9 Aug, 2023, 8:00am - 15 Sep, 2023, 11:59pm

We welcome your feedback

The Report on the Retail Banking Review, published in November 2022, includes a recommendation that Ireland should fulfil certain OECD obligations in the area of financial literacy and develop a national financial literacy strategy. The Department of Finance has been tasked with the development of this national financial literacy strategy. 

In order to inform this work, the Department of Finance is now undertaking an extensive stakeholder engagement process, including the issuing of this questionnaire, seeking information on financial literacy/education initiatives currently in place and being delivered in Ireland across government departments, state agencies, civil society, NGOs, representative bodies and the financial sector. 

While the key objective from this stakeholder engagement process will be to establish a stocktake of current financial literacy initiatives in place, it will also be used to identify potential gaps in financial literacy. Once this stage is completed, work will commence on the development of a national financial literacy strategy, informed by input from this stock-taking exercise and by international best practice in this area. 

We would welcome your input through completing this questionnaire.  The questionnaire is quite detailed, but many of the questions are optional. Registering to complete the survey is optional, but it will allow you to save a draft and come back to complete it later. 

The deadline for submission of a response is: 15 September 2023.

If you have any additional opinions, information or feedback on the current provision of financial literacy in Ireland and its future development that are not addressed directly in the specific questions within this questionnaire, please send these to: 


We intend to publish the contents of all submissions received in response to the survey in a mapping report. We will redact personal data prior to publication. In responding to this survey, parties should clearly indicate where their responses contain personal information, commercially sensitive information or confidential information which they would not wish to be released under FOI, AIE or otherwise published.

We would like to draw your attention to the Data Privacy Notice on the Department’s website which explains how and when we collect personal data, why we do so and how we treat this information. It also explains your rights in relation to the collection of personal information and how you can exercise those rights.

The closing date has passed and submissions are no longer being accepted.
