Budgeting Workshop, Roundtable Chat

All members are invited to attend a monthly workshop aimed at helping members create a budget to manage limited income and rising expenses.

Last month saw the first budgeting workshop / roundtable chat. Members found it helpful to share ideas on creating a budget to manage expenses at a time when income, benefits and allowances are becoming stretched.

These sessions are aimed at everyone. Those who manage their budgets ‘just fine’ are welcome to come and share their insights with those who find funds never stretch as far as needed.

These budget workshops are planned for the 2nd Monday of every month. The next workshops will be the 10th of September and 8th October.

  • accessing social housing via the choice based lettings system,
  • re-sales and service charge payments in retirement schemes,
  • aids and adaptations to help people stay in their homes
  • plus others…
