Talk Money Week aims to encourage people to open up and start talking about money.
Lots of people have money worries but for some, 2020 has made these worse. But there are some simple steps you can take to feel more in control of your money.
Research shows that if we talk about money we tend to be less anxious and more in control of our financial situation, make better financial decisions and help our children form good money habits.
Talking about money helps us be more confident and makes us better able to deal with life events that could result in a reduction in income.
Don’t forget, if you do want to talk to a professional, our employee assistance programme can provide practical advice around:
- debt management
- legal and tax advice
- disability and care issues
Anyone in your household who is over 16 can contact the service for advice.
We’re also asking frontline workers who support Derbyshire residents to use Talk Money Week as an opportunity to find out more and promote the support that is available to those people who are facing money worries or challenges that they may not have had to face before:
