Summer Money Management workshops at the Carers Support Centre for carers. 

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

The Carers Support Centre’s practical summer workshops 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.

Are you getting the best deal?

Wednesday 26 July, 1.30pm - 2.30pm

An interactive session on how to use price comparison websites and reduce the cost of your household bills. Customers can save up to £250 a year if they have never switched utility suppliers; so please bring your own bills to see if this could be you.

Budgeting made easy

Wednesday 2 August, 1.30pm - 2.30pm

Struggling to keep on top of your finances? Keep yourself on track by setting and managing a budget.
