A BARNSLEY church is offering residents a place on their money course this month to help those on low incomes survive winter.

Debt help charity Christians Against Poverty (CAP) will be offering people the chance to access the course at Gateway Church, to help people get through the cost-of-living crisis.

Janet Morris, the charity’s money course leader, said: “Many local families living on a low income are already in a financial crisis due to widespread rising costs.

“The October energy price rise, combined with all the other price increases, will result in debt, destitution and desperation for thousands of local people this winter.

“That’s one of the reasons we’re launching CAP’s money course this October.

“It’s a friendly short course designed to help people create workable budgets, helping you see exactly what you are spending, how you could save money and prioritise your spending to include the things you really need or want to do.

“People are facing unparalleled financial challenges right now. Getting our money under control, preparing a budget and having a clear picture of what’s coming in and going out is the first essential step to navigating our way through the next few months and possibly years.”
