“Put More Money in your Pocket”

The Croí na Gaillimhe Resource Centre of the Society of St Vincent de Paul’ completed another successful programme last weekend. Called ‘More Money in your Pocket” the programme covered a range of topics including: attitudes to money, developing a spending diary, control of money, budgeting and budgeting tools, budgeting strategies and management techniques, paying and prioritising bills, record keeping, savings – the why and the how and shopping healthily on a budget. It was delivered one morning a week over six weeks. Over 12 participants received certificates. The course was funded by the Maureen O’Connell Fund of the St. Vincent de Paul. The course largely works towards the ‘Eurowatchers’ - A Home Budgeting Programme which was produced in 2009 as a joint initiative between VEC and MABS (Money Advice and Budgeting Service). This programme was developed in co-operation with experts in the fields of adult and community education and its goal is to empower people with the skills to manage their day to day finances. The course has been adapted in order to meet the needs of the local community and has included a supermarket tour which was kindly facilitated by the Health Promotion Service of the HSE.

Ciara Coy, Tutor with the VEC said “It was wonderful to see the group grow in knowledge and confidence, gain practical skills and develop connections and warm friendships from participating in the More Money in your Pocket Course".

A collective comment from the learners: “an informative, eye opening, empowering and fun course’

Loretta Needham, Manager of Croí na Gaillimhe Resource Centre explained that “If you are trying to make your weekly incomes go that bit further then this is the course for you. The course looks at effective ways to manage your money and plan your budget, shopping tips, on a tight budget and lots more.  No formal educational qualifications were needed. It’s useful for anyone who wants to make their weekly income stretch that bit further”.
