Couch to Financial Fitness
MoneyHelper’s new Couch to Financial Fitness plan is a free, step-by-step programme, designed to help you build confidence in managing your money. Inspired by the popular step-by-step training app, ‘Couch to 5K’, it will help you build back your money fitness after the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. The programme guides you through three simple activities per week over four weeks, to help you master the money essentials, followed by an extended programme which is focused on life’s money milestones.
To begin with the programme will guide you through money essentials such as: budgeting; staying on top of bills; cutting costs; and building up savings.
Once you’ve got those under your belt it’ll move on to money milestones that you can tailor to your life. These could be buying your first home, starting a family or planning for retirement.
