The Confederation of Community Groups, Newry Credit Union and Community Advice  are providing a new service “Small Change to Lasting Change” that could help anyone struggling financially. 

They can support you with your personal finances and budgeting, and help review your household bills to see if you could make savings.

There are many barriers to saving, including the difficulty of living on a low income with too many bills and demands from children. You may have never saved before or maybe you don’t have a separate account to use for savings. Regular saving is a good idea.

If you are struggling to put money aside Small Change to Lasting Change can help you get started on the right road. It’s not just about putting a few pounds away. They can help you manage your money better and start saving in other ways. They can help you change your energy supplier; get a new phone contract; change to a cheaper or free TV package.

The service can provide dedicated money advisers who can help you to complete an Income/Expenditure sheet.

Small Changes

  • Change your shopping habits or where you shop
  • Try completing a spending diary – this will help you keep track of what you’re spending most on.

Life is always changing; your priorities may change too.  The service can also help you keep up with any knocks or bumps that happen.
