A CLACKS church is offering a safe space for financial advice and money coaching to people struggling with the cost-of-living crisis.

Tillicoultry Baptist Church has partnered with charity Christians Against Poverty (CAP) to provide expert financial education in the local community.

The course will be held at The Gate Charity at their HQ on Ludgate and will be led by money coach Colin Primrose.

He said: “With the soaring cost-of-living over the last few years, we’ve seen how important it is that people know how to successfully manage their money, whatever their income.

“It’s vital that we know how to balance what we have, save for emergencies and stay out of debt.

“Our money coaching course is here to help people in Clacks do that.

“We’ll look at things like building and balancing a household budget, prioritising spending and keeping our finances stable into the future.

“The course is completely free and will run over four weeks at The Gate Charity.

“There’s something for everyone to learn, from those who have never used a budget before to those who simply want to re-evaluate their financial situation. All are welcome.”

The Gate Charity has also partnered with CAP for the sessions, offering up not only their premises but also will be handing out £30 Farmfoods vouchers to anyone who attends three of the four sessions.

The money coaching classes will launch on Tuesday, January 16 at 1.30pm at The Gate, 2 Ludgate, Alloa.
