Free financial wellbeing programme continues
A free financial wellbeing programme to help people improve their relationship with money is being continued, following a successful bid for funding.
The course is delivered by Enable East, an independent NHS team that operates as part of Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust.
The team can organise small group sessions and are asking any organisations and community groups who work with people who would benefit from the programme to get in touch at email@example.com
More than 250 people have taken part in the programme since January 2023 and the funding from Essex County Council will allow the team to work with more people across Essex.
The course - which is part of the national Multiply programme - helps people to improve their relationship with personal finances and increase their confidence in maths, numeracy, finances and budgeting.
The sessions explore how money and wellbeing are intrinsically linked, how emotions impact how we spend, and how our mental health can often influence decisions that we feel able to make around our finances.
Participants must be aged 19 or over, live in Essex and not have a grade C or above in maths GCSE.
The course is part of our commitment to supporting our local communities to thrive.
