In January, The Brain Charity will be launching ‘money and maths’ drop-ins to help you save money by improving your real world maths skills.

Our informal twice-weekly sessions (Tuesdays 11am – 12pm and Thursdays 10.45 – 11.30am at The Brain Charity’s centre) will help you feel more confident understanding numbers in practical ways.

We can provide one-to-one support on topics such as:

  • Managing and taking control of your finances
  • Maths booster skills – adding, subtracting, multiplication, division and percentages
  • Using maths to work out your weekly shop
  • Household budgeting
  • How to use online price comparison sites
  • How to understand and save money on your gas and electricity bills
  • Credit cards and store cards and how to manage them
  • Money news – inflation and interest rates, what does it mean for me?
  • Scams and staying safe online
  • Understanding bank accounts
  • Your credit score and how to improve it

But we can work with you based on any questions you might have.

If you want more continuous learning, you can also join our weekly maths class.

Fill out the form on this page, email activities@thebraincharity.org.uk or call 0151 298 2999 to sign up now.
