Money Matters ‘Free’ Seminars
Last year the Consumer Council & Community Savings Ltd. ran a survey to ‘check Islanders’ financial health’ to see what problems people were facing when trying to manage their money, particularly as a result of the recession.
We were keen to know just how we could help islanders with any issues raised.The results clearly indicated that whilst many islanders felt in control of their finances different age groups face different financial challenges. Respondents were saving their money in a variety of ways with 119 respondents (7.8%) placing money in a savings scheme.The Consumer Council & Community Savings recognise that we have different financial needs at different times in our lives.
