Money worries

Covid Cash Recovery Course

Could you help those in your church or community who are having money related issues or worries due to Covid-19?

The Just Finance Foundation deliver the COVID Cash Recovery free via a 2-hour webinar workshop.  You will then be able to deliver the training directly to people in your community who would like to be supported. This can be done via several methods such as face to face, small groups, Zoom, telephone etc, in two one-hour sessions.

The course is about information and signposting NOT giving advice as financial advice is a regulated activity.

“ I found this course to be brilliant, especially so as I am not a finance person, but it gave me the confidence to believe I could begin to open conversations with others having been given both useful & helpful information. I felt empowered to offer ideas and signpost people in the right direction. “  

Mary Perrett, Manager The Bridges Centre, Edenbridge
