Feedback wanted for Citizens Advice Bureau helpBy Victoria Smith
June 12, 2012
An advice service that has helped thousands of people through financial woes is looking for feedback on its support.
Bracknell and District Citizens Advice Bureau is looking for feedback on its MoneyTalks project, which launched in 2003.
Since it started, the project has helped 3,480 people and delivered 338 workshops in Bracknell Forest.
In 2003 the bureau had a large number of debt clients and wanted to combat a general lack of financial awareness.
During the last five years of Big Lottery funding the project has been proactive during the financial storms buffeting the area.
As the credit crunch developed, unemployment began to rise and the project targeted those looking for work.
MoneyTalks has produced workshops on ‘Budgeting and taking Financial control’, Managing Borrowing and ‘Surviving moving from benefits into work’.
Over the past eight years the project has delivered talks to more than 400 Bracknell Forest Council employees on such topics as ‘Savings and Pensions’ and ‘Planning for Retirement’.
If you have been helped by MoneyTalks and have any feedback, email Anne Harding at email@example.com
