People struggling to manage their finances on over-stretched incomes are being offered advice from a course run by Wellington Baptist Church. “
“In the current financial climate, many people are finding their money does not stretch as far as it once did,” explained course leader Ruth Wall. “Some of us in the church felt we wanted to offer help to people worried about making ends meet, so we teamed up with debt charity Christians Against Poverty to offer their CAP Money courses in Wellington
“The course is for anyone who would like to manage their money better, and spend and save more wisely. It’s completely free, completely independent of any financial institutions, and suitable for people of all faiths or none.
“We’re aiming for people to come away feeling less worried about money, and more in control of their finances. We can cater for people of any income, in debt or not, and of any age – and we have some specific resources for people who are students, self-employed, or facing retirement.
“We can provide childcare so parents can attend (as long as we know in advance) and we provide a light brunch of fruit and pastries at each of the three Saturday morning sessions. In the past we’ve had people of all ages and backgrounds come along and find the course useful, and if after the course people need more in-depth support with debt issues, we can refer you on to qualified debt counsellors.” Times & dates can be found by clicking here
