Good Cents supports community awareness and a culture of change in a community where debt can mean interest rates of 400% or more.
The Good Cents initiative provides practical community based support and education so that people can gain more control over their personal finances.
The 8-week courses are free and run once a term on Tuesdays between 10am and 12pm.
