It provides participants with an awareness of the different saving and investment products available and considers the risks, rewards and potential returns to enable informed choices.

Credit & Borrowing
The use of credit is no longer taboo. Most of us wouldn’t be able to buy a home without it. This workshop provides participants with the skills to understand the different types of credit available allowing them to make informed borrowing decisions. Participating in this workshop allows participants to understand how credit files and scoring influence the options available to them and how to avoid the serious consequences of problem debt.
Debt You Can Manage

It can often result in feeling embarrassed and afraid to seek help as well as having a negative impact on our overall financial, physical and mental wellbeing. This workshop provides participants with guidance about what to do if you are worried about debt and provides details about how to access money and debt advice.
Mortgages & Help to Buy
What could well be the biggest purchase of a person’s life needs to be done with a full understanding of the mortgage market and the different options available. Acquiring a mortgage at a cost that’s affordable and also meets their individual needs can provide a feeling of security. This workshop gives participants the tools to be able to make good financial choices when considering taking on a mortgage or remortgage and knowing when and how to engage a mortgage broker.
Insurance & Protection
As well as mitigating risk, insurance provides people with a sense of wellbeing and security as they know that if something goes wrong their product/service can be replaced. This workshop focuses on how to protect against financial risks by exploring the merits of different types of insurance and discussing how to choose a policy that meets each individual’s needs.
Retirement & Pensions
For many of us, we feel ill-prepared for retirement – not knowing the size of our pension pot and worrying that we haven’t saved enough are common anxieties. This workshop aims to help employees understand pension planning and the importance of saving for retirement throughout life so that informed decisions can be made. Participants will also have the opportunity to learn about when and how to seek financial advice to avoid common pension pitfalls.
Wills & Future Planning
A Will tells everyone what should happen to a person’s assets after they die. But that’s not all. Making sure that personal wishes are respected and family is cared for financially will give them some peace of mind. Thinking about a Will is also a great time to consider other legal protections such as a Power of Attorney. This workshop helps people understand the need for a Will, the cost and how to get one and to consider the other options available when future planning.
