  15. The National Strategic Advisory Group met four times from May to September 2010 to advise on the development of this strategic guidance.

  17. In August 2010 the Scottish Government published a discussion paper and evidence review on financial capability as the starting point for developing a more consistent policy on financial capability. The aim is to guide the Scottish Government's own activity and influence and support community planning partnerships ( CPPs) and local authorities to promote, integrate and coordinate financial capability work in their areas. The target group for this work is those at greatest risk from the impact of poor financial decisions, or at risk of financial crisis without some form of intervention

  19. There are no commonly agreed definitions for health literacy, however it can possibly be best summarised as a person's ability to: maintain and enhance health by finding, understanding and using health information; safeguard individual or community health by reading and understanding information or participating in programmes; take preventative measures, understand importance of early detection and self-management of long term conditions; seek and form a partnership with health and social care providers to follow directions or discuss alternative treatments; understand and access health services.
