Our Work Out Your Money team in the Community and in Schools has won a prestigious award from the Illegal Money Lending team which was presented at an event in Havant Plaza with the Mayor of Havant and other invited guests. The team won a £3000 grant which will be used to make some videos for use in training and on our websites. Well done to the team and you can read an article on the Portsmouth News website here: Portsmouth News 21.04.2017 We had a special cake which was cut by the Loan Sharks team special Shark:

Advice Manager Jane from Citizens Advice Havant got the chance to have a quick chat with Moneysavingexpert Martin Lewis at the Citizens Advice conference at Warwick University on September 20th. As it's time for a new batch of students to start uni, Martin was keen to encourage them to think of student loans as a Graduate Contribution rather than a debt. Student loans seem like a huge millstone round young people's necks, whereas more than likely they'll never end up repaying them. Far better to look at them as a kind of tax that only gets paid when they earn enough. Then they can concentrate on saving for important things like a house, rather than worrying about the amount of student loan outstanding. Some parents even consider repaying the debt when they'd be better off using spare cash for helping wth a house deposit instead.

 

Amanda, Service Delivery Manager at Citizens Advice Havant overcame her fear of flying to take a flight in a light aircraft piloted by Mike, a volunteer assessor.  They flew over to the Isle of Wight for a quick cuppa and then back to the mainland.  The event was sponsored by friends and family and raised money for Citizens Advice Havant and also for another charity Tree of Hope to raise money for Mike's grandson Jack who has cerebral palsy, to pay for a selective dorsal rhizotomy operation and physiotherapy.  We are happy to report that that charity has now reached its target for the treatment.
