Help with managing your finances

Do you want to make sense of your money, get online or find routes into employment?

Our New Horizons project offers coaching to help you make sense of your money, as well as get online and find routes into employment.

Our trained coaches will work with you to provide one-to-one support sessions over an average of 20 hours. They’ll work with you to set realistic goals and take the necessary steps to help you meet them. We will provide end-to-end coaching covering money, work and help to get online. Each participant will receive, on average, 20 hours of coaching support to enable them to get on in life and closer to employment. If needed, additional debt remedy services will be offered to participants as part of the project by one of our partners

Coaching sessions generally take place in one of our centres where you’ll have free access to our computers and the internet.
