Money education has been at the heart of Crosslight’s mission since the very beginning
We have always believed that helping individuals out of a crisis is only part of what we are called to do; equally important is helping to equip them with the tools they need to manage their money well so that they can face the future with more confidence.
Which is why we produced the Money Course – an opportunity to go back to basics and think through both our emotional relationship with money, and the down-to-earth practicalities of managing it well.
First published in 2013 with the support of Alpha and Stewardship, the Money Course is today part of Crosslight Advice and has been run by all sorts of organisations as far afield as Canada, South Africa, Australia, and the USA as well as throughout the UK.
What are the aims of the course?
Our aims are to empower guests to take back control and give them the tools to make discerned choices about how they spend their money rather than having circumstances dictate their choices.
Who is the course for?
Few of us can claim to be on top of our finances all the time, and most of us lack confidence when it comes to good money management. Our courses are aimed at anyone who would like to explore their relationship with money and learn how to budget, particularly those who may be worried about, or struggling with, their financial situation.
About Crosslight Advice
Crosslight first opened its doors in September 2009 and since then has provided advice and support to thousands of families and individuals in difficulty.
Set up originally as part of the social action work of Holy Trinity Brompton church in London, Crosslight has its foundations in the Christian faith and our core value is to help anyone, regardless of background, faith or circumstance. Today, Crosslight is an independent charity working in partnership with local churches to combat poverty and hardship caused by the burden of unmanageable debt and lack of financial capability.
