This project was undertaken by academics (Dr Declan French, Professor Donal McKillop and Dr Elaine Stewart) from Queen’s University Belfast (Management School). The objective of the project was to determine whether mobile apps designed to enhance financially capable behaviours can help people from disadvantaged communities make better informed decisions about how to tackle debt, manage money day-to-day and prepare for life ahead. Four apps, packaged together under the title ‘Money Matters’, were provided to working age members (16-65 years) of Derry Credit Union (Northern Ireland). The project was undertaken between February 2017 and April 2018.
