Diocese of Chichester

The Church of England has set up the Just Finance Foundation, which will develop and implement the Archbishop of Canterbury’s continuing vision of creating a fairer and more just financial system. It will oversee LifeSavers and the Just Finance Network (Church Credit Champions Network), the core programmes initiated by the Task Group on Responsible Credit and Savings. The website contains details of how to set up Life Savers schools savings clubs. The Church Credit Champions Network helps local churches to engage faithfully and effectively with issues of money, debt and credit in their communities.

For individuals in the parish needing help in financial difficulty, the best option is Citizen’s Advice who will offer a face to face meeting, but their website also suggests many options without attempting to ‘sell’ anything.
