Money Guiders network
The Improvement Service (IS) has launched a new learning network in Scotland called the Money Guiders network.
It aims to support a wide range of individuals across all sectors that deliver any form of money guidance. They may be in the voluntary, third or public sector and money guidance may only be a small part of what they do. Money guidance just means talking to others about money worries. This could involve giving individuals information or helping them get expert advice.
This network is one element of a wider ‘Money Guiders’ programme which seeks to help organisations and practitioners deliver money guidance well throughout the UK. It aims to be a place for money guiders to come together for peer-to-peer networking and finding out about other learning opportunities.
The Money Guiders network in Scotland has also organised a series of free online events for those who provide money advice in the voluntary or third sector.
The first, on 12 October, is an overview of their wellbeing project, which, along with several tips, will talk about some of the tools available to you. There’ll also be an opportunity for you to share what works for you or others you support. This session introduces two longer free workshops which will be run early in December and during January. These will cover ‘Stress Management and Resilience’ and ‘Protecting Your Wellbeing’.
