Managing My Money
We are Knowsley Disability Concern, a charity helping local people who have physical and/or learning disabilities, autism and long-term conditions to live as independently as possible. We provide practical advice, group support, learning programmes and other services that enable people to make their own decisions, to have choice over the services they need and to be in control of their lives.
With the support of the Skills & Opportunities Fund, we will be delivering Managing My Money, a programme of learning and development activities about money, specifically designed for adults with learning difficulties.
We'll run a series of 2-hour sessions in local community settings familiar to the learners, focusing on money management, including personal banking, benefits, bills, budgeting and savings. At the end of the programme, participants will know how much money they have, what it is worth, where it comes from and how they can choose to spend it. They will also be able to open and operate their own bank account, understand how to manage money and how to plan their finances.
