Manage your Money
Managing our money is something that we all do, although most of us have never had support with this and some of us struggle to make ends meet.
Money management support at the Bromley by Bow Centre helps you get finances under control and make your money go further. We can support you to develop the skills to manage your money better today and to plan for the future.
Getting on with Money
The Getting on with Money project helps you manage your money in a way that works for you and enables you to feel in control.
We offer one-to-one sessions with our friendly advisors in locations across Tower Hamlets. These sessions can help you make sense of your finances and make changes to the way you manage your money.
Sessions are led by you and cover:
- Budgeting - getting an idea of the money you have coming in and going out
- Saving money on your day-to-day costs - finding ways to reduce your expenditure and make it more manageable
- Help you find ways to feel more prepared for unexpected costs or changes - thi
