Worried about the rising cost of bills and how to make ends meet over the winter season?
Birmingham residents will have the opportunity to get financial advice on energy fuel bills, borrowing money and tips on where to access affordable healthy produce at a fraction of the cost compared to some supermarkets.
A joint event organised by the England Illegal Money Lending Team and Birmingham Financial Inclusion partnership will be held in a shop that fronts the Birmingham Bullring Market on Friday 17th January 2014, between 11am and 3pm.
The event is been supported by the England Illegal Money Lending Team who redistribute the proceeds of crime, in particular loan shark activities, to raise awareness of the difficulties and dangers of borrowing money in this way.
Also, members of the Birmingham Financial Inclusion Partnership will be on hand to share information and advice in the ‘‘Cool Winter Money Saving Hints and Tips, which will point residents to other local organisations who will be able to help them and their families through any financial difficulty.
