WHAT WE OFFER
We run group Money Management workshops and offer one-to-one Money Mentoring support for people in Brent
MONEY MANAGEMENT WORKSHOP
Our Money Management workshop helps people discuss their ideas and concerns about money topics. We encourage the people who come to think about how they can share what they learn with their friends and family.
Topics we cover include:
What influences our spending
Dealing with debt
Money saving ideas
Everyone who comes will receive a free Managing Money Better guide and a spending diary.
“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.”
CHILDREN AND MONEY WORKSHOP
Our Children and Money workshop has been developed especially for parents. It's a great way for schools to work together with parents to help children understand money matters better. The workshop includes the following topics:
How to teach your children about money including age-appropriate activities and games
Communicating with children about money
What influences children's attitudes to money
Passing values about money onto our children
All participants receive take home activities to help them teach their children about money.
“The workshop was thought-provoking. I have seen a positive change in my child’s behaviour. I now explain things clearly at her level. I wouldn’t have thought to do this before. It is an excellent thing that you do.”
Our Money Mentors work one-to-one with people to help them to:
Put together a budget
Use a spending diary
Work out how to cut spending
Apply for grants if relevant
