About Talk Money Week

Held from 8 to 12 November, Talk Money Week aims to reduce the stigma around money by encouraging conversations among families, friends, neighbours, customers, colleagues and communities. Talking openly about money can have a huge impact on tackling money worries, and is important for our overall health and relationships. The impact of Covid-19 has made it more important than ever to start conversations about money to look after our financial wellbeing.

CAP recognises that debt can often be a symptom or cause of wider issues. Each Debt Centre has a team of volunteer Befrienders that play a key role in supporting clients practically and emotionally through friendship and personal support. CAP also has a specialist fund that can be used to buy food, clothes or other essentials for clients in extreme circumstances.

CAP’s service is completely free, there are no minimum repayment requirements and it doesn’t matter how much debt someone has or how low their income is.

Free budgeting course

In just three evenings they will draw up their own budget and learn a money management system, with a free on-line budgeting tool that is theirs to keep, to help them stick to their budget.

The course runs over 3 consecutive weeks and our next course starts on Wednesday 17th November 2021 via Zoom. To book a place, go to www.bit.ly/3CI3MFp or for more information visit www.capmoneycourse.org
