Money Matters

The Money Matters project aims to help people develop the skills they need to confidently manage their finances, to make the most of their money and to make the right financial choices for them. We are delivering sessions in community venues across the District and can also visit people in their own homes. Sessions are fun, practical and informal and provide lots of information, money-saving tips and advice about where to go to for help.

The sessions explain how to:

  • Create a household budget and keep track of your money
  • Deal with household bills, making sure that the bills that matter most are the ones that get paid
  • Deal with debt and learn what to do and where to go for free professional help and advice
  • Get clued up on credit by learning about interest rates, the choices available and the right ones to avoid
  • Find the right bank and saving accounts and learn about Credit Unions and the difference they can make to any financial problems
  • Cut the cost of utility bills and get the best, most appropriate tariff
  • Become a confident consumer by finding out about what rights you have when you shop for products and services in store, online, at car boots and privately.
