Financial Resilience

People experiencing financial distress, particularly those on low incomes, are often reluctant to talk about their problems or seek help. And the complexity of different financial products, and the benefits and allowances systems, often makes the idea of finding a solution seem impossible.

Transforming Plymouth Together works through churches and with local community groups to tackle these issues. We organise sessions to teach people about budgeting and money management, and to help build their financial confidence.

We have also linked with the local Credit Union and are taking part in a course that was set up by the Just Finance Foundation. The course, Cash Smart, Credit Savvy, offers introductory training around basic budgeting skills that is run as an informal and fund group activity. We run this course because we believe that everyone can benefit from learning some simple, practical skills around budgeting and money management.

Some of our partners include:

Christians Against Poverty (CAP)

Salvation Army Whitleigh
