Tools and information to help you understand and make the most of your finances
Money worries can have a significant impact on your life. They can affect your relationships with those close to you and leave you feeling anxious and stressed. While this doesn’t automatically mean you have a mental health problem, left unchecked, issues can snowball and impact many aspects of your life including your physical and mental health.
However, there is lots of support and advice available to you to help you tackle these problems.
And if your finances aren’t causing you any concerns, it’s often a good idea to check and see if you’re making the most of your money.
Whatever your position, there’s usually no time like the present for taking a closer look at your finances. That’s why we’re encouraging everyone to do a Financial Wellbeing MOT using the Money and Pensions Service’s free and confidential Money Health Check tool below.
There are also lots of helpful printable guides on a range of topics here.
