Knightstone is a leading housing association in Somerset and the West of England, committed to building vibrant, stable and safe communities where people can make their homes. We provide services to over 23,000 people in 11,000 homes, and build around 300 homes a year.
But we’re more than just a landlord. We’re here to help and support our residents and this has never been more important, as times really are tough. Wages haven’t all kept up with inflation, welfare reforms have led to cuts in benefits and living costs seem to just keep increasing.
At times like this it’s tempting to reach for Ready Money – for example by borrowing at really high interest rates from a doorstep lender or payday loan company or by missing important payments like rent or utility bills, or even cutting back on essentials like food.
We want to help each other to Be Money Ready – to find ways to stretch our money as far as possible and be prepared for those rainy days when we have to dig deeper than normal. On this site, you’ll find all sorts of useful tips and advice on how to be money ready.
We hope you find it useful!
