Brighouse residents are being given another chance to get their finances in order with a free course being run by a local church.

Members of Cornerstone Church in Brighouse who have been trained by UK charity Christians Against Poverty, are again running the three sessions aimed at helping the local community to best handle the current economic downturn.

Money coach Irene Naylor, who will be leading the sessions called the CAP Money Course, said: “If you know how to save and budget effectively, it can have a hugely positive impact on the whole family.

“With households feeling the squeeze on their disposable income, we’ve all got to get a bit more savvy about our money to get through these tough times.”

Cornerstone is one of more than 1,000 churches of different Christian traditions across the UK who are regularly offering the course, as they work together to positively impact the communities around them.

The CAP Money Course has been found to be useful for newly retired people, soon-to-be students, mums dealing with mounting bills, families saving for a wedding and everyone in between.

She added: “We hope that we can help people, quietly and confidentially, take the guess work out of their situation so they can plan for the future, sort out any problems early and come through unscathed.”

The next course takes place Cafe 139, Bradford Road, Brighouse, starting at 7.30pm on February 10.
