Chai and Chat is back! Next week the Health and Wellbeing team are addressing one of the most stressful issues in a student’s life – money.

Join the team, with special guests from the University of Sunderland’s Student Financial Guidance department, for tips, tricks and advice.

“Money, money, money. No, we’re not talking about that classic ABBA song. It’s the next Chai and Chat!

This time we’ll be looking at all things to do with finances.

We’ve teamed up with Kevin Potts from the University of Sunderland’s Student Financial Guidance department.

Together we’re bringing you an informative and interactive session on saving your cash.

Talking about money can be difficult. That’s why we want to assure you that there’s no need to share anything personal in the session.

The purpose of this Chai and Chat is to give you some simple tips to help benefit your financial situation.

The pandemic has had an undeniably huge economic impact on the nation and the world.

On top of the obvious difficulties that come with money issues, they can also have a major effect on your wellbeing.

But support is out there if you’re worrying or feeling like financial concerns are affecting you.

The Health and Wellbeing team are here for you if you need to chat.

Plus, the Student Financial Guidance department in Sunderland have a dedicated website filled with advice and information about their services.

Or you can talk to DebtFree London for free guidance by calling 0800 808 5700.

The next Chai and Chat session is on Wednesday 3rd March at 2pm

We’ll run the event again on Friday 5th March at 2pm if you can’t make the first one. 

You can find out more about Chai and Chat on the University of Sunderland in London’s Canvas information page.

Hope to see you there!”
