A new service that will help Southwark residents struggling with personal finance and money management issues is being launched at the Employment Academy this month.
The Thames Reach Money Savvy Southwark workshops will help a range of individuals including young people, those in and out of work, and people living in supported housing to make the most of their money.
A number of other organisations including Southwark Citizens Advice Bureau are also running sessions as part of the Money Savvy Southwark partnership which is backed by Southwark Council and funded by the Big Lottery Fund.
Lisa Hallam, lead worker for Thames Reach’s employment and resettlement team said: “We’re really looking forward to launching this service that will help some of Southwark’s most financially vulnerable men and women to avoid and manage serious debt and tackle personal financial issues.”
Employment Academy facilities and marketing manager Anneke Ziemen said: “We’re very proud to be hosting Thames Reach’s Money Savvy Southwark workshops at the Employment Academy as part of this exciting five-year initiative.”
The next Thames Reach Money Savvy Southwark workshop is on Friday 14 June running between 10am – 12.30pm at the Employment Academy, 29 Peckham Road, London SE5 8UA. For more information please call Thames Reach’s employment and resettlement team on 0207 062 0549.
