CAP course will help you to deal with money matters

Bearsden Baptist Church is running two free sessions to help people get on top of their household finances.

Members of the church wanted to help their local community to best handle the economic climate so underwent specialised training from UK charity Christians Against Poverty.

Now they are offering a short CAP money course to teach people how to chart their household income and take control of their expenditure.

Money coach David Cameron, who will be leading the sessions, said: “With households feeling the squeeze on their disposable income, we’ve all got to get a bit more savvy about our money to get through these tough times. If you know how to save and budget effectively it can have a hugely positive impact on the whole family.”

The CAP money course is useful for newly retired people, soon-to-be students, mums dealing with mounting bills, families saving for a wedding and everyone in between.

David added: “We hope that we can help people, quietly and confidentially, take control rather than relying on guess work so they can plan for the future and weather the storm.”

The first course (two sessions) takes place in the church at 14 Roman Road, Bearsden from 7.30pm to 9.30pm on Thursday, March 6 and March 13.
