Residents of Nantwich are to get an online version of a free budgeting course.
St Mary’s Church in Nantwich has been running the CAP Money Course, in partnership with Christians Against Poverty (CAP), for the last two years.
Due to social distancing, the CAP Money Course has been adapted so that people can participate online instead.
Michael Pettman, local CAP Money Coach said: “The past few months have been very challenging for all of us. One concern is not really knowing what the outcome will be as we come out of the lockdown.
“We’ve all got different financial challenges but getting our money under control, preparing a budget and having a clear picture of what’s coming in and going out is essential.
“The CAP Money Course can give you the tools you need to control your cash.”
The online course will be delivered using video conferencing systems led by a local trained CAP Money Coach.
The course runs for three weeks and consists of a weekly group session of about 90 minutes for up to 8 people per group.
The course is designed to give a broad picture of finances, including sessions on building and balancing a budget, the CAP Money system, maintenance and savings.
All that is needed to join the course is either a computer or laptop, smartphone, or tablet with a good connection to the internet and an email address.
Michael added: “You don’t need to be a computer whizz to get this running.
“All you need to be able to do is to use email and click on the link from an introductory email we’ll send once you’ve registered for the course.”
Former CAP Money Course delegate, Kate, said: “I found the CAP Money Course a great tool to help with budgeting. It has helped me have control over my finances rather than them having control over me.”
