With worries mounting over energy prices and the rising cost of living, a church is set to run free sessions to help people in Filey get on top of their household finances.
Members of Filey Parish Churches wanted to help their local community to best handle the economic climate so underwent specialised training from UK charity Christians Against Poverty.
Now they are offering the short course aimed at teaching people how to chart their household income and take control of their expenditure.
Money coach the Revd. Huw Waring, who will be leading the CAP Money course, said: “With households feeling the squeeze on their disposable income, we’ve all got to get a bit more savvy about our money to get through these tough times.
“If you know how to save and budget effectively, it can have a hugely positive impact on the whole family.”
Filey Parish Churches, along with more than 1,000 churches of different Christian traditions across the UK, offer the course as they work together to positively impact the communities around them.
The CAP Money Course has been found to be useful for families dealing with mounting bills, newly retired people, soon-to-be students, couples saving for a wedding and everyone in between.
The Revd. Huw added: “We hope that we can help people, quietly and confidentially, take control rather than relying on guess work so they can plan for the future and weather the storm.”
The course, consisting of four sessions, will be held at St John’s Church, West Avenue, Filey. The first session starts at 6.45pm on Friday April 29th 2022. Three further sessions will follow on May 13th, May 20th and May 27th.
