Healthy Relationships Toolkit

Welcome to your healthy relationships toolkit. 

Find all the tools you need to have healthy conversations about money with your partner

We’ve created a unique toolkit to help you have constructive conversations about money with your partner. 

You’ll gain a better understanding of your own relationship with money and what influences people’s behaviour around money – all whilst gaining the tools and knowledge you need to have constructive conversations about money. 

The toolkit features checklists and real-life examples that you can use on yourself and with your partner to improve your conversations about money.

Getting started

Pick a section that is most relevant to you – you can start from anywhere. 

To get the most out of your toolkit, you may wish to start from the beginning and work your way through the pages in number order. 

However not all sections of the toolkit will be relevant to you, which is why we’ve designed it so you can skip through different sections.

Part one: preparing for the conversation

It’s important to understand the often invisible factors that influence the way we view and engage with money.
