Monday 8 to Friday 12 November marks the 2021 Talk Money Week! 

The Money and Pensions Service established this yearly campaign to encourage people to have conversations about their finances, to help improve physical, mental and financial wellbeing.

Research shows that people who talk about money:

  • make better and less risky financial decisions
  • have stronger personal relationships
  • help their children form good lifetime money habits
  • feel less stressed or anxious and more in control

Please visit the Talk Money Week page for lots of helpful information on how to start a conversation about managing your finances.

The Money and Pensions Service has created an online Universal Credit (UC) tool called Money Manager which supports residents on Universal Credit payments. Residents can use this accessible tool to help make budgeting decisions and plan ahead to keep up with rent. Click the button below to find out more:

Who can I speak to at Hightown? 

Our Income Recovery team support tenants to maintain and sustain their tenancies, to help ensure their rent is paid. The most important advice they give our tenants is to engage with them and let them know if their circumstances change, so they can offer appropriate support, guidance and ongoing help.

If you have any queries, would like to talk through your rent balance or are in need of further support, please email or call your Income Recovery Officer.
