Log on and 'Like' for Financial Advice


Published by New Charter for New Charter Group in Housing

TAMESIDE residents can now go online to receive valuable financial advice.

Money Information Network Tameside (MiNT), a partnership aiming to give people free access to financial advice, is to launch a brand new website and Facebook page.

The facility provides advice on dealing with debt, bankruptcy and welfare benefits as well as providing tailored advice to personal circumstances.

Representatives from MiNT joined together at Central Library, Ashton -under -Lyne, Greater Manchester on Thursday, June 9th to celebrate the launch.

New Charter’s Graduate Trainee in Corporate Services helped set up the site and Facebook page after those using the service said they wanted easier ways to access advice.  Roisin said:  “There’s never a good time to worry about money, but in the present climate financial matters are more pressing than ever.  But many people don’t know where to go to get the advice they need.

“MiNT’s new website and Facebook page are excellent ways for people to find the support they need with the click of a mouse.  It will be a really valuable resource.”

New Charter’s Financial Inclusion Manager and Chair of Cash Box Credit Union David Burdis added:  “Financial support is an ever-increasing part of what we do here at New Charter.  Supporting tenants and the wider community to manage money better has knock on effects that go far beyond making people feel happier in their day-to-day lives. 

“These new ways of accessing essential advice reflect the commitment of MiNT member organisations to make sure everyone has access to information that can help them make these positive changes.”
