Dudley Council launches course to help tenants on a tight budget
12:00pm Sunday 18th August 2013 in Local
DUDLEY Council has launched a new course to help tenants cope with financial pressures created by the recession and the impact of the welfare reforms.
The council’s adult and community learning team has joined forces with housing services to offer tenants the Live4Less course which provides tips and advice on how to manage money and make budget savings.
The six-week course, which comprises a two-hour session each week, covers budgeting, setting priorities, reducing transport costs and improving energy efficiency plus other topics such as food and healthy eating on a budget.
The programme, supported by the Citizens Advice Bureau, is available to borough residents or council tenant.
Councillor Steve Waltho, Dudley’s cabinet member for housing and community safety, said: “Although we are currently offering Live4Less to our tenants the course is open to anyone in the borough who feels they need some help with budgeting, finding ways to save money or even making lifestyle changes.”
