Share this post on:

As high costs continue to put pressure on households across Kendal and the surrounding areas, a local charity is offering free money coaching to help people manage their finances.

Kendal and District Debt Centre, in partnership with charity Christians Against Poverty (CAP) and Westmorland and Furness Council are providing expert financial education in the local community.

Money Coach Laura Kirkham, who leads the courses, says, ‘With the soaring cost of living over the last few years, we’ve seen how important it is that people know how to successfully manage their money, whatever their income. It’s vital that we know how to balance what we have, save for emergencies and get out or stay out of debt. Our money coaching course equips people to do that. We’ll look at things like building and balancing a household budget, prioritising spending and keeping our finances stable into the future.

Money coaching isn’t just about getting to grips with money practically – it’s about helping people find the freedom that comes with being in control of their finances. It can impact mental health, physical health, relationships, work life and self-belief. Plus, there’s an amazing sense of achievement when you reach a goal, like finally being able to buy something you’ve been saving up for. Managing money well can be so rewarding!’

Laura adds, ‘The courses are completely free and will run over four weeks. There’s something for everyone to learn – from those who have never used a budget before to those who simply want to reevaluate their financial situation. Everyone’s welcome!’
