Free debt and money advice at Bramley Community Shop

Bramley Elderly Action’s new information point hosts its first outside organisations this week. The free, confidential service, based at the new Bramley Community Shop at Bramley Centre, will start with two organisations which offer vital help and support in planning and managing your money.

Money Buddies will start at the Community Shop from 12.30 on Wednesday 29th October.

Money Buddies are volunteer money friends who will work with you to help you save money. They can help you maximise your income, negotiate with people you owe money to, develop budgets and financial statements, help you switch utility suppliers and apply for grants. They will be available at the shop every Wednesday from 12.30-4.00.

Bramley Credit Union opens for business at the shop at 9.30 on Thursday 30th October. It will then run a full service for customers at the Community Shop from 9.30-12.30 every Tuesday and Thursday.

BEA staff will also be at the shop to offer general information and advice from 10.00-12.00 every Monday morning. We will have a range of leaflets and can use a confidential space to talk. Please drop in for a chat.

You don’t need an appointment to use any of these information and support services.

Please contact Lee Ingham at Bramley Elderly Action (0113 236 1644) if you are involved in an organisation which would like to have a slot at the information point in the Community Shop.
