Jobseekers in Ashfield are to be given advice on better money management at two special workshops, hosted by Nottinghamshire County Council Work Clubs.

Money advisors from Ashfield Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) will provide help with personal budgeting, tips on how to increase income and reduce outgoings and explain the impact of changes to the benefits system.

The event is being held at Kirkby Work Club, Kirkby Library, Ashfield Precinct (opposite Morrisons), on Friday 17 April, from 10am until 12 noon.

Denise Stephenson, work club co-ordinator for the council, said: “Money worries can have a direct, negative impact on someone’s ability to find employment, making it all the more difficult to get out of a spiral of unemployment and debt.

“These workshops will help people during a time of significant changes to the benefits system, helping people to manage their money better through the preparation of a personal budget and signpost them to places where they can get further help.” Visit www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/workclubs or call Denise Stephenson on 07775 588 756 for more information.
