Angela* accessed the Money Sorted service in June 2017 through St Ann’s Advice Centre.
As someone who was long term unemployed Angela’s confidence was very low. She was busy caring for an elderly neighbour on a voluntary basis and did not have access to a bank account. Angela felt that her current budgeting could be better and from time to time she had run out of money in the past.
Through a series of support sessions with Julian, her Personal Navigator, Angela was able to develop her knowledge and confidence to think through how she should manage her money. The first task after registering with the programme was to help Angela establish a bank account. After Julian explained the different banking options available Angela proceeded to open an account by herself.
