This week (8-12th November) is Talk Money Week – a national campaign led by the Money & Pensions Service to get us all talking about money.
Here at The Co-op Credit Union we’ve taken up the challenge by launching our very own podcast series: Stuff you should know about money.
You can listen here – and just because we’re good like that, we’ve also put gone and put the key points in an infographic at the bottom of the page.
In this first episode we talk to Victoria Barry, a long-standing member of the credit union, about how she got into real trouble with payday loans and high-cost credit when she was younger, and how the credit union helped her to get back in control of her money.
The podcast aims to give you practical tips and guidance on how to avoid getting out of your depth with high cost credit – and what to do about it if you do.
Check out the infographic below and give the podcast a listen when you can – it’s available on all the streaming platforms like Spotify and Prime Music – just search Stuff you should know about money. Each episode is a bite sized 15 minutes or less helping you get to grips with money on the go.
And don’t forget, if you do need some help getting on top of debts, we’re here for you. Our consolidation loans have helped hundreds of members get their finances back on the right track.
