Tues 19th Jan 2021, 11am with Financial Consultant Frances Burton: Redundancy & Your Money - redundancy may be a shock or it may be planned, but whatever the circumstances, there are important decisions to be made. This workshop will discuss the questions people need to ask themselves before making these decisions and will look at the different options. It will also help people think about budgeting and managing any debt they may have. Details of organisations offering support will also be shared.

Tues 26th Jan 2021, 11am with Financial Consultant Frances Burton: Mind Your Money - this workshop explores the importance of building financial resilience and the link between money and mental wellbeing. It also encourages people to think about their relationship with money and how, if necessary, they can begin to challenge this.

The workshops will take place via Zoom with a max. of 20 people per session as this allows time for Q&A’s. Places will need to be booked. Attendees will receive a free copy of The Money Charity’s latest Money Manual; a handy guide to making the most of your money. If you would like to attend but are not confident using Zoom, we are more than happy to help you.
