2020 has been a year for polarising the rich and the poor. Those who are in well-paid jobs and who are able to work from home saved 8.6% of their income in the first three months of 2020 according to Christians Against Poverty.
Sadly, those who are the lowest earners and the under-30s have been left struggling financially in the wake of COVID-19. From this group 37% say they’ve eaten less than normal, and 31% have reduced the number of showers or baths they’re taking.
The Cap Money Course
Christians Against Poverty are offering free online courses that meet weekly for 6 weeks. These courses aim to teach budgeting skills and help people to face the reality of what is coming into their bank account and what is going out. Having more control over finances can help to prevent debt and encourages people to save where possible.
