Financial wellbeing

Financial wellbeing can improve your happiness and sense of security.

The information and tips here will help you become more savings-savvy as well as point to where you can get help.

You can also find ideas for how to be more resourceful on our Social Wellbeing page.

Budget

Start to record your incomings and outgoings. Even the small things add up over time. You could even import your bank statements into a spreadsheet.

Money Saving Expert's free budget spreadsheet can help you get started. And Smart Asset has a list of top ten money management tips.

Track with an app

Money saving apps can help you track your finances.

Talk to your bank

Banks often recommend annual review chats. You'll get to know what the bank has to offer and how to get the best return on your savings. You can also hear about what to do if you need support.

Bargain hunt

Keep an eye open for retailer deals and offers. Our favourite sources for up-to-date news are Money Saving Expert (MSE) and Great Deals Made Easy. Both offer monthly updates on what's available, plus you can subscribe to MSE's monthly tips.

Also, it pays to know where your money goes, so check a recent statement to see if any subscriptions can be cancelled.

Getting support

Muslim staff may be able to access additional financial support through the National Zakat Foundation.
