GMPA Money Matters Blog

We are happy to announce that the GMPA Money Matters project has been extended and is live in this school waiting for you to contact us for free advice. 

An adviser trained by Citizens Advice is on hand to help you. 

We are offering advice on benefits, debts and maximising families incomes.  

Since the start of the project, we have secured over £160,000 for local families that have benefited from our support and advice. 

How can advice help you may be wondering - is it worth me contacting?

Sometimes the advice we provide helps people a little and sometimes the advice we provide can be life changing. 

Are you struggling with the cost of living? You aren’t alone. Thousands of households around Greater Manchester are finding it hard to pay for everyday items as prices for essentials like food, gas and electricity have rapidly increased. 

Could you be missing out ?

Contact us today to arrange an appointment to see how we can help.


Budgeting Tip of the Month 

Assistance with school bus passes:

Some councils provide travel assistance to eligible children, young people and adults. There are different types of travel assistance to support people getting to school, college or a social care setting. The aim is to help people achieve maximum independence. Is it possible that you meet the criteria for help?

Please get in touch.
