Council’s Personal Budgeting & Digital Support Officer

Nov 13, 2018 | LBH

The PBS & Digital Support Officer  provide support to residents in making and managing their Universal Credit claim including accessing and using on-line services. The officer is  responsible for providing advice, information and assistance around debt and the management of their finances. The role involves supporting  residents through individual or in-group personal budget sessions , investigating claimant’s financial and personal situation including digital skills and work with them to enhance their financial capability. The budgeting sessions helps residents to  identify alternative ways to save money and how their financial choices affect their lifestyle. Around 75% of the clients  were intrigued when they discovered  how much they can save by making slight changes in their choices like switching to sim only plan rather an upgrade, Freeview instead of Sky, alternative sources of emergency funding rather than taking overdrafts or going to money lenders. The PBS & Digital Support officer aims to educate them on the financial choices they have and how make the most of it. In the end every little helps.
