Financial Essentials - helping people understand and manage their money
We are raising funds to create a Financial Essentials online course, The course will be designed in a non-technical way to help people understand and manage their money more effectively by covering a range of topics that are relevant to everyone regardless of their age.
The course will cover: income and income tax, national insurance, budgeting, borrowing, interest, savings, investments, pensions, insurance, gambling and security & fraud. The course will be created by Chartered Financial Planners from accredited training provider Wizard Learning.
The target of £600 will allow us to design the basic learning material and set up an online course. If the target is not met we will create a few of the most important chapters and create the others at a later date.
Being able to understand and manage our money and keep it safe is essential to allow us to work towards achieving our future plans and dreams and live without financial fears and worries.
The training will be available as an e-learning course and also used for face-to-face training. It will be offered free where possible or at a minimal cost to cover the website maintenance costs.

There’s no Grand National, Formula 1 or Tour de France - instead encourage your friends and family to take part in the new and exciting sport of chicken racing.
We have enlisted the support of the racing chickens to help us raise funds. You can experience the fun of Extreme Chicken Racing by choosing your favourite chicken when you donate. If it wins you receive a reward of a micro Extreme Chicken sports towel.
