Today was the final day of Talk Money Week, an annual awareness campaign coordinated by the Money and Pensions Service to encourage everyone to open up about their money and pensions.
Held from 7 to 11 November, Talk Money Week aims to reduce the stigma around money by encouraging conversations among families, friends, neighbours, customers, colleagues and communities. Talking openly about money can have a huge impact on tackling money worries and is important for our overall health and relationships. The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and pressures due to the rising cost of living has made it more important than ever to start conversations about money to look after our financial wellbeing.
During the past few weeks, the Letchworth Financial Health Project, funded by the Heritage Foundation and run by Citizens Advice North Herts have been running the Cost-of-Living Support workshops for parents at local primary schools.
This workshop explores:
- Financial support from the Government
- Ways to reduce our costs
- Energy saving tips
- Ways to boost our income
- Taking control of our budgets
- Being aware of scams
This week we ran a session at St Nicholas School in Norton.
