To improve our Financial Wellbeing, we all need a balance of the core building blocks of understanding money and our mindset towards it.

Led by qualified and experienced Certified Money Coaches, this course includes two foundation sessions to help understand our relationship with money; strategies and tactics to improve our habits; and then provides practical knowledge on the key elements of managing your everyday finances such as budgeting, managing debt, and where to get support if you are struggling.

***Both these sessions are delivered online via Microsoft Teams and all participants will be able to join and ask questions completely anonymously***

Foundation in Financial Wellbeing - 26th January 2023, Time - 10:00 – 11:00

As an introduction, we address the fact that it is difficult to talk about money and share the definition of financial wellbeing, how it contributes to financial resilience and ask participants to consider why it is beneficial to give financial wellbeing their attention.  We also explain that financial wellbeing can be achieved by working on goals, mindset, and financial habits. Working on one area alone will not create long lasting, transformational change.

Foundation in Personal Financial Planning - 1st March 2023, Time - 10:00 – 11:30

In this session, key areas we are focusing on are personal budgeting, taxation, borrowing, mortgages, and savings.  Throughout the presentation we explain in detail about tax codes, mention about credit cards, loans, and credit score, with regards to mortgages we focus on 1st time buyers, mortgages and moving house, and we also focus on personal savings allow and we give ideas to delegates about savings.
