Money, benefits and wellbeing advice

Customers tell us they are finding things tough at the moment. Here you can find advice, support and tips on saving money on the things that matter to you.

August money saving ideas

Hi, I'm Josh. I'm part of the financial inclusion team here at Home Group. We give customers free, one to one support on all money matters.

My top tip this month

If you are receiving a cost of living payment pop it on your energy account ready for Winter or add it to your food budget. Otherwise, it will be gone before you know it, while those bills keep on rising.

School’s out for Summer

Here are some fun ideas to keep everyone entertained that won't break the bank.

- Make time to enjoy the school holiday and have fun with the family. Here is our guide to entertaining kids on a budget 

- If you want to treat your kids to a meal out there are lots of places kids can eat for free 

It is time to get ready for next term. School uniforms can be expensive, so find out if you can get help towards school uniform costs 

It might be hot now, but it is time to think about applying for your warm home discount. Utilita's scheme opens in August, set yourself a reminder and get that application in.

There is lots more info below, so keep scrolling.
