Budgeting Tips To Help Your Money Go Further From York Council


12:10pm 10th April 2014

The free booklet ‘Making the Most of Your Money’ is for anyone who wants to manage their money better, cut back on spending or get help to pay off debts.  The booklet includes small changes and tips to reduce regular monthly outgoings and grocery bills. There are great money saving recipes from two local chefs, Michael Hjort of Meltons and Magdalena Chavez of El Piano, as well as inspiring ideas for low cost or free days out and events.

Councillor James Alexander, leader of City of York Council, said: “Among the council’s key priorities are protecting vulnerable people and creation of a fair and inclusive city for all. The Small Changes booklet reaffirms our commitment to develop a citywide approach to help meet the needs of those struggling with debts and cost of living crisis.”

George Vickers, manager of York’s CAB said: “We are seeing more people who are finding it difficult to manage their budgets. This booklet sets out clear steps to help people make the most of their income and reduce their outgoings, as well as what to do if they get in to difficulty.” 

Hannah Stenton from Aviva said: “We were glad to contribute Aviva’s financial expertise and sponsorship to develop the booklet and further confirm our commitment to the city and the financial wellbeing of its residents.”

The booklet is available now from York CAB – based at West Offices– and from all York libraries. It can also be downloaded from the council’s website at http://www.york.gov.uk/small_changes and from CAB and York Advice Partnership websites.
