If you’re feeling the pinch with the cost-of-living and energy increases and want to take control of your finances, join this budgeting workshop to help you feel more confident with your money.

It can also help you stay focused on your long-term financial goals. This 1-hour workshop will introduce you to range of budgeting tools and apps and share tips on how to keep track of your spending.

The session covers topics such as:

  • Establishing your money goals
  • Spending triggers and spending priorities
  • The importance of financial resilience
  • Planning and preparing your budget
  • Explore technology to help you budget
  • Keeping track of your budget
  • The benefits of savings and how to make your money go further
  • Introduce organisations offering free, credible support and information

All attendees will receive a free digital copy of a Money Manual as a handy guide to making the most of your money, together with a signposting handout detailing the organisations mentioned in the session.

The workshop will be run by The Money Charity. The tone of the sessions are upbeat and non-judgemental, making no assumptions about attendees’ knowledge and ability.
