MoneyHelper has launched a free Couch to Financial Fitness plan designed to help consumers get better control of their finances.

The plan has been launched at a time when rising inflation and household bills, along with the ending of the furlough scheme at the end of this month, means that many consumers are anxious about their personal finances. According to the Scottish Widows Household Finance Index, consumer financial wellbeing fell between July and September compared to April to June.

The MoneyHelper Couch to Financial Fitness plan is a nine-week plan which the company says “will help you build your confidence to manage your money”. The plan includes weekly steps and provides tools to help consumers cut spending, save more and create good long-term financial habits.

Free advice charities such as MoneyHelper or Citizens Advice are able to provide support and help to those struggling with unmanageable debt, as well as providing advice for those unable to cope with rising living costs.
