Citizens Advice is offering a Free 1 day course on Money Management to groups throughout Northern Ireland, funded by DfC.

We want to ensure that money management training is available to as many as possible by training existing staff, volunteers and members in organisations, networks and community groups as they adapt to Welfare changes. In turn those who attend this training can share their money management knowledge and skills throughout their organisation/networks and community groups to those financially impacted by welfare reform.

At Citizens Advice we know that having the financial skills to make informed decisions at key life events can mean the difference between a secure future and a desperate struggle. Through this training we aim to help people avoid a financial crisis. We want everyone to have the knowledge, skills and confidence to make informed decisions around budgeting, borrowing, saving, credit and banking. Our trainers make sure the sessions are fun, engaging and full of practical tips.

The areas covered in the training are 
  • All areas of money management (budgeting/saving/credit/banking/debt)
  • Impact of Welfare Reform
  • Digital - online budgeting tools, comparison sites and information
  • Signposting/referral

If your organisation would be interested in this training in your area we can also organise this for 12 or more participants.

We will also be providing an open session in our Regional office in Belfast on Wednesday 27th September 2017 Citizens Advice Regional Office 46 Donegall Pass Belfast 1030am -330pm
