Get your finances on track with our free money management workshops

Feeling the financial pinch this year? You’re not alone; according to the 2016 State of Caring survey by Carers UK, almost half of full time carers are struggling to make ends meet.

Taking care of the pennies...

Our practical summer money workshops are here to help carers make the most of every penny. Run by South West London Law Centres (SWLLC) during July and August, our workshops give practical information and advice to help carers stay on track. Workshop topics include smart and savvy budgeting, getting the best deal and checking your benefits entitlement.
