Community Information Workshop

An evening that will bring together speakers from a selection of service providers to discuss some of the essential financial matters facing families and to provide information to ensure better protection and financial planning for the future wellbeing of the whole family.

Every day, we are faced with major financial decisions affecting our family’s wellbeing and ahead of us there may lie further life changing financial events that we simply haven’t got around to preparing for. There may be issues of financing a house move or extension, saving for a child’s first car/school trip/wedding/tuition fees, dealing with the rising costs of childcare, or having to consider a ‘what if’ scenario if illness, premature death or a legal wrangle affected a member of the family. With the correct planning, resources, support and professional advice, these matters dont have to sit on the worryingly long ‘to do’ list.

Presentations, discussions, tips and practical advice for parents and all members of the local community from a panel of experts. Short talks to include (running order yet to be set):
