“It was brilliant and was very reassuring. I was burying my head in the sand and the workshop helped me face up to my debts. Straight after the session I went and got organised. If I hadn’t gone to the workshop I wouldn’t have had the strength to deal with my problems. It gave me the kick that I needed.”

WHO WE ARE
Let's Talk Money
Let's Talk Money is a financial education project for adults based in Brent in North West London. The project was set up in 2009 by volunteers from Community Church Harlesden determined to support members of the community facing financial hardship. It was initially a debt advice service called Harlesden Money Advice. In 2015, the service was relaunched as a financial education project delivering free workshops and support to adults in the local area. The name of the project changed to Let's Talk Money to reflect this change in direction.
Let's Talk Money is a charitable project of Community Church Harlesden (www.cchonline.org) which is a local church and registered charity (charity no. 1121958).
