Money Buddies are here to help you save money, increase your income and advise you at times of financial crisis. They are the biggest independent Money Advice Service in West Yorkshire, and their aim is to help their clients out of debt and poverty. They are an independent organisation that works in partnership with Leeds City Council, councillors, and other leading charities in Leeds, The Leeds Debt Forum and the Community Fund (Big Lottery) to deliver Money Buddy sessions across the city.
Whether you’re having difficulty paying a debt, need legal debt advice, or if you’re not sure what to do about your finances, they can help you.
You don’t need to be in financial crisis to get help, many of their clients don’t have any financial issues – they enquire to see a Money Buddy to find out where they can save money on their gas, electricity, water bills and much more.
Support is free, non-judgemental and confidential. Your safety and financial capability is their priority.
Money Buddies is a project of Burmantofts Community Projects. You can sign up for a Money Buddies support session via the button below.
