It’s Savings Saturday and we have tips and advice to help you manage your finances if you’re struggling, especially if it’s impacting your wellbeing. 

This time of the year, it can be an even bigger struggle to manage your finances just after Christmas and waiting for pay day. There are different ways and schemes that you may not be aware of, that can help you get your finances in control.  

  • Utility bills Changing your tariff or applying for discount schemes could help you save money on your heating, electric or water bills. 
  • Managing your bills – If you have had a change in circumstances or COVID-19 has impacted your finances, and you are finding it difficult, reach out to your providers to see what they can offer to support you to manage your bills. 
  • Fee-free bank account  These are a great option if you need a bank account receive money and to pay your bills without the worry of going into an overdraft. 
  • Warm Home discounts  There are schemes available that you may be eligible for to help manage the cost of heating your home in the cold weather.  

If you require any support from Trivallis’ Money Advice Team, get in contact with them as soon as possible, they can help you get you back in control of your finances if you are ever struggling.  

If you are finding it difficult to manage your finances, get the support you need to prevent your money worries impacting your mental health and wellbeing.  

If you or someone you know is struggling, we want you to know you are not alone and there is help and support out there to access. Reach out to someone you trust, a doctor or mental health charity to discuss how you are feeling.
