LOCAL charity, Vineyard Compassion, is one of 400 CAP Money centres across the UK and is about to run its latest free course to help people get their New Year finances in order.
CAP Centre manager and trained Money coach, David Kelly, said: “We are putting on this course because we know how financial worry can mess up relationships and caused havoc with health and well-being.
“The CAP Money Course is there to debt-proof families against this kind of stress and with something like a third of us relying on credit to get us through Christmas, it might be the best resolution we can make going into 2013.”
The confidential sessions comprise three hours spread over three weeks and help people to create a household budget, prioritise spending, begin saving and re-organise banking.
It is designed to be helpful to anyone whether unemployed, receiving benefits, working, self-employed, retired, newly married or recently divorced.
The course dates are Tuesday, January 29, Tuesday, February 5 and Tuesday, February 12, starting at 7.30pm at The Vineyard, 10 Hillmans Way, off Ballycastle Road, Coleraine.
