Let’s Talk about money!
So many of us don’t talk about money! Taking control of your money can help improve relationships, reduce stress and anxiety, better sleep, improved overall wellbeing to name a few! Navigate the Money Maze aims to get us taking about:
- Money – budgeting, borrowing, banking, income, debt.
- Priorities – what is important to you? How do you want to make your money work for you?
- Tips – how to make the most of your money – only you can decide what your priorities are!
- Financial jargon and what does it actually mean?
How do our courses HELP?
Most of us have to make financial decisions and manage money; as a young person receiving pocket money or starting a first job, or as an adult managing a household budget. Money affects us all and having the skills, knowledge and confidence to make informed financial decisions can help in so many areas of life, relationships, sleep, anxiety and overall wellbeing to name a few!
