Financial Resilience

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

The Money Advice Service's Debt Advice Locator Tool provides a list of local organisations in your area, who can provide free, unbiased and accredited advice about managing debt. You can access the locator tool by clicking the button below:

We have also put together a page of useful resources to help you to navigate through the financial uncertainty during this difficult period:

Our Response:

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.

Some of our partners include Just Finance Foundation, Christians Against Poverty (CAP), Salvation Army Whitleigh and Plymouth Foodbank.

COVID Cash Course...

The COVID Cash Course is a free course which trains churches, community leaders, and organisations, to provide key information and resources to help their communities cope with the variety of money issues which have arisen due to COVID-19.

Many households across the UK have been thrown into financial chaos due to the Coronavirus and people are unsure of:

  • What they’re entitled to
  • All the options of support that are available (and when they may be finishing)
  • How to plan, budget and cope financially during this period of uncertainty

The COVID Cash Course aims, by providing information and signposting, to reduce this uncertainty and prevent the financial challenges, posed by the Coronavirus, from causing crisis in local communities. The COVID Cash Course was set up by the Just Finance Foundation and more information about the course can be found here.
