Nobody In The Dark

Quids in! supports the Nobody In The Dark campaign, helping people who feel unsure about how the internet can boost their finances.

You may have seen our Future-Proof Finance Quiz. This is one online tool that can help people grow their income and reduce their spending. It doesn’t ask for personal financial details, it just has a series of yes/no questions. It also links onto other websites that can take people a step further.

You can see the official Nobody In The Dark page here. It is hosted by Mastercard, who also support the campaign along with the online skills charity, the Good Things Foundation.  The website points visitors towards handy hints and helpful how-to guides from us and our friends at Learn My Way. (They provide free, online courses to help newcomers find their way around the internet.) Everything is carefully chosen, easy to use and safe, so you can feel more confident and connected.

Step into the light and take control of your money

On 11th November 2020 Mastercard shone a light on digital and financial exclusion by lighting up tower blocks in London and Bristol. The buildings were lit up for 19 minutes 40 seconds, to represent the 19.4 million Britons* who feel in the dark, due to digital and financial exclusion made worse by COVID-19. (*Source: YouGov)
