LAL Combatting the Cost-Of-Living Crisis With Special Money Saving Courses!

Saving Money and Improving Well-being, One Course at a Time 

Lancashire Adult Learning Launches Initiative to Combat Cost-of-Living Crisis 

Lancashire Adult Learning (LAL) has introduced an initiative to fight the cost-of-living crisis and improve well-being in the local community. The initiative, running alongside their Multiply project, is aimed at teaching the art of frugality through cutting costs, living smarter and improving well-being during trying times. 

The free courses are now up and running and are taking place throughout the year. These can be attended both online and in person in various locations across Lancashire. Learners can register their interest through accessing the Lancashire Adult Learning website.  

There are a number of unique offerings available, and the courses are mostly targeted at issues that face the Lancashire community during times of economic hardship.  

Courses on offer include bill management and financial budgeting, which aim to help attendees better manage their finances and convey handy hints and tips to sizably cut down their gas and electric bills. Cooking and meal preparing on a tight budget is also part of the curriculum, where the focus is cheap quick and easy meals that are both filling and nutritious without breaking the bank. 

These courses are open to all members of the community, including employers, partners, low-income and unemployed learners, as well as those in employment who are struggling to make ends meet.  

Furthermore, LAL have other initiatives targeting the cost-of-living crisis including coping with stress and anxiety, and improving mobility at home that will aim to improve the happiness and well-being of the local Lancashire community. Employers are invited to consider utilizing these offerings in order to provide their employees with unique and effective support regarding their mental, physical, and financial well-being. 

Local libraries are similarly supporting their community by offering cost-of-living support, namely through their Warm Spaces initiative, which invited the local community into their warm libraries with various incentives, including the following: 

  • a warm drink. 
  • a space to sit. 
  • free computers and Wi-Fi. 
  • charging points for your phone or laptop. 
  • events and activities. 
  • help from staff to find information. 

Partner organizations can also request cost-of-living support for their service users to support people during these challenging times. 

When commenting on the cost-of-living courses, Tom Gee, Head Of Curriculum: Employability, Volunteering and Skills at LAL said “Lancashire Adult Learning is proud to be supporting the community through innovative and practical programs in response to the cost-of-living crisis.  

 “We understand that times are tough and that people are struggling to make ends meet. That’s why we have developed these courses, to provide practical and helpful advice to help people manage their finances and improve their overall well-being.” 

LAL’s initiative is a timely and relevant response to the ongoing cost-of-living crisis and will provide valuable support to the local Lancashire community. The courses are free, easily accessible, and cover a wide range of topics to help people improve their financial situation and overall well-being.
