Managing your Money

The easiest way to make your money go further is to write down everything that you earn or receive and everything that you spend every week. To help you do this use a budget sheet or calculator.

If you are spending more than you have coming in then you need to;

  • Reduce spending on non essential items and non-priority bills.
  • Speak to us about checking your benefit and tax credit entitlement.
  • Think about increasing your income by going back to work or doing some overtime.

If you’re still spending more than you have coming in, make an appointment with the Financial Inclusion Team either through the WCHG App, contact us on 0300 111 0000 / 0800 633 5500 or email
