Overview of Support offered

Money Wise is a short 6 week course that will support you to manage your finances better. The programme aims to offer advice and information to anyone living on tight budgets, looking at living more independently or preparing them for work. We will cover:

  • Why money is important in everyday life.
  • Managing living costs for those on low budgets.
  • Earnings and income including examples of how wage slips are set out and what gross and net pay are.
  • Basic bank and other savings accounts.

Ever wondered what happens if you get into debt? We’ll give you the answer to that too. In making sure you are fully equipped for being money wise we will also provide you with information of key organisations that can help and support you with your money queries.
