Talk Money Week - Community Events

The City of Edinburgh Council will join partner organisations in four Talk Money events held across the city to share tips and advice for managing money.

Held from Monday 12 to Friday 18 November, Talk Money Week is an opportunity to reduce the stigma around money by encouraging conversations among families, friends, colleagues and children.

As part of this week the Council will be holding community events aiming to get more people talking about personal finance issues, saving regularly, planning for retirement, and fewer people using credit for everyday spending. They will take place:

  • Monday 12 November - South Leith Parish Church Halls (11am - 2pm)
  • Tuesday 13 November - The White House, Craigmillar (11am - 2pm)
  • Wednesday 14 November - The Prentice Centre, Pilton (11am - 2pm)
  • Thursday 15 November - Westside Plaza Shopping Centre. Wester Hailes (11am - 2pm)

At these events residents will be able to access information and advice to deal with issues such as:

  • Benefit entitlement
  • Personal debt
  • Problems with fuel suppliers
  • Paying too much for gas and electricity
  • Support to live independently
  • Rent payments and how to avoid or deal with arrears
  • Budgeting skills
  • How to access free school meals and clothing grants for schoolchildren
  • Developing skills to get a job
