Free money coaching course are being provided in Dorchester to help people with the cost of living crisis.

Dorchester Baptist Church is offering free money coaching to help people manage their finances in partnership with the charity Christians Against Poverty (CAP).  

Coaches from CAP are offering a three-hour course, one on Saturday June 15 from 9.30am until 12.30pm and a second course on Tuesday, June 18, from 2pm until 5pm at the Dorford Centre.

Course participants will learn how to put a budget together, with tips on how to make their money go further and how to be disciplined about spending.

CAP money coach Dick Howard said: “Improving your financial situation has never been so important.

“With food costs and energy bills remaining high, it’s a really worrying time.

"Taking control of your money can help you feel more at ease and lessen the stress of the cost of living crisis.”

He added: “The courses are tried and tested and nationally well-regarded financial advisers have contributed to the material.

"And they are independent – no one is trying to sell you any financial products.”

Dorchester Poverty Action and Foodbank are backing the courses by offering a £20 Co-op voucher to participants who live in the DT1/DT2 postcodes or who are NHS workers.

The courses are run by Dorchester Baptist Church using material created by Christians Against Poverty.
