Money management training session - Tuesday 10th July 2012

Are you a disabled person or person with mental health Issues living in Birmingham?

Are you having difficulties managing your personal finance? Perhaps you struggle with debt or are permanently worried about how to get by from one month to another?  

Working in conjunction with Birmingham Helping Hands, a mental health support group run by service users, Disability Resource Centre have organised a taster session on money management for people who need advice and support to self manage their finances.

DRC's debt and money advice officer John Boular will run through some basic tips and advice around money management. For people experiencing debt at the moment, on the day John will be able to offer future appointments to provide further advice and advocacy.

The session takes place at Ladywood Methodist Church on Tuesday 10th July 2012 for two hours from 1pm.

We have up to 10 places available, please let us know if you want to attend by emailing Pete Millington on pmillington@disability.co.uk or calling 248 4530.

After the training session, Chris Perry from Helping Hands will tell people more about membership of their new self-support network and there will be a further opportunity to socialise until 3.30pm.
