Financial Education

Our Financial Education Officer is raising awareness of the impact of financial decisions and help improve financial knowledge in the community.

Dealing with money is an everyday part of our lives, and that can often make it more difficult to admit when they don't quite understand it. There's no need to be embarrassed and you are certainly not alone. 

  • Would members of your group or organisation benefit from help with their personal financial issues?
  • Do you wish someone could talk to your group about money in a way that is easy to understand?

Group talks and workshops are available to all residents in Dumfries and Galloway, particularly groups who deal with young people, people in regeneration areas, those not in education, employment or training, people who have become unemployed or those experiencing a significant change in their circumstances.
