We are delighted to announce that Positive Money has joined the Digital Pound Foundation (DPF) as a strategic partner. The DPF is an independent organisation working with a variety of stakeholders and participants towards the implementation of a well-designed Digital Pound.

Positive Money and the DPF will collaborate on areas of mutual interest and alignment across the two organisations’ policy and advocacy activities, as well as coordinating on joint educational and awareness initiatives such as podcasts, webinars and other events.

Commenting on the partnership, Simon Youel, Head of Policy and Advocacy, Positive Money said: “As one of the first civil society organisations to advocate for digital cash in the UK, we have been pleased to see widening interest in the prospect of a digital Pound in recent years. The Digital Pound Foundation has a key role to play in bringing together a diverse group of stakeholders and perspectives to explore the potential impacts of new forms of money, and we are excited to be part of this mission.”

Jannah Patchay, Executive Director and Policy Lead, Digital Pound Foundation added: “We are very pleased to welcome Positive Money to the DPF as a strategic partner. Positive Money is already making an impact on the development of CBDC policy  via its existing campaigns and close engagement with policymakers across Europe. We look forward to exploring avenues through which we can collaborate in raising awareness of the potential social and economic benefits that new forms of digital money can deliver.”
