The UK has never needed financial education more than today. Recent research has shown:
At The Money Charity we believe that everyone has the ability to manage their money well, no matter what their situation. Our workshops aim to help people develop the knowledge, skills, behaviours and attitudes to get on top of their money and stay there.
We work in partnership with businesses and organisations, who host our workshops at their premises to groups of up to 20, and we currently have funding for free delivery to charities and non-profits! We’ve worked with a range of organisations including credit unions, prisons, youth groups, churches, housing associations, homeless charities, further education colleges and local councils.
Our workshops are friendly, interactive and aim to inspire participants to see money as something positive in their lives that can help them to achieve their goals. We make no assumptions about your prior knowledge, or your own relationship with money; we want to enable people to look at their finances differently and set them off on a better path.
Financial concerns mean stress, anxiety and depression3; we can help you change that with our money workshops
We envision a world where people are able to make the most of their money, living happier, more positive lives as a result.
