Money worries

If you've been made redundant from your job, aren't getting as much work as before or can't find any work, it's natural that you'll feel anxious about where money will come from to pay for food, bills and other everyday costs. Even if you are working as much as before, you might still have debts you're struggling to pay back.

Worrying about money can also affect the way you think and feel about other things in your life, but there are lots of practical ways that people can help and advise you about to deal with money problems.

Debt

The UK government's 'Options for paying off your debts' page is a good starting point to understand how you can pay off or manage debts more easily.

Money Helper, which replaced the Money Advice Service, is the UK government's website with advice about all sorts of financial situations, including how to manage debt and find the best ways of becoming debt-free.

Saving money

The Blue Light discount card offers people working in the NHS and social care (and some other key workers) discounts online and in-store from large national retailers to local businesses, on things like holidays, cars, fashion and phones.

Advice on finding work

The UK government website's 'Finding a Job' page has lots of job and career advice and links.

Other financial wellbeing advice

The NHS Financial Wellbeing site has been set up with the Money Advice Service and offers support via phone, WhatsApp and a webchat, tools like budget planners, and links to other websites and services who can offer further support.
