Money talks

Online only

Online Recovery College Courses (18+)

Does the big shop always leave you a bit short at the end of the month? Do you need to buy the kids new uniform and can’t quite figure out where you can make some savings to be able to afford it? Are you desperate to get away for a break (somewhere, anywhere that’s not the same four walls you’ve been in all through the pandemic!) and you’d like some tips on how to make it more affordable/easier to pay for? Perhaps you’ve had some unexpected bills you haven’t budgeted for and don’t know how you’ll pay for it or who to turn to for support? Maybe you’ve never felt confident in talking to your energy company, insurance company or even your bank to see if they could save you money or help you to manage your money well?

With the help of Flipside’s quick and easy app, we will help you to create your own money plan from scratch and help you steer your way through the intimidating world that is dealing with big companies who we have to pay money to for their services. You’ll hear stories of people who’ve been where you are, how they sought the right support and find tips on what could work for you and help you manage your money and give you some financial freedom.

This free one-off workshop will look at ways to prioritise and make smart choices, with the option to go on and learn even more with Flipside’s support.

Join us, along with our fictitious friend Abi, for this fun and relaxed session.
