NI Savings Week

Savings Guide

Northern Ireland Savings Week (26th - 30th Sept) arrives at a challenging time for a lot of people and families. Household budgets are squeezed, and so too is our capacity to save.

At Progressive, we understand the financial stress points and pressures people are facing. That is why, for Savings Week 2022, we’re focusing on the little savings which can all add up to something good, bringing you a one-stop guide featuring the expertise of Consumer Council and Action Mental Health to provide you with hints and support on how to make those everyday savings, or cut back a little where you are able to do so. At Progressive, we’ve been supporting people on their savings journey across Northern Ireland for more than 100 years.

Savings Week 2022 is all about saving what you can, when you can, and taking small steps on the path towards long-term financial health and wellbeing.

Savings Guide

We’ll soon be hearing from Consumer Council and Action Mental Health on those everyday savings and how best to manage money worries, but first, the Progressive team guide you through energy efficiency tips you can employ every day in the home.

Action Mental Health

Action Mental Health, which was founded in 1963 in Downpatrick, has for the past 57 years been dedicated to promoting mental health and wellbeing of people in Northern Ireland. Working across NI, Action Mental Health offer a range of services from therapeutic counselling for people of all ages to personal development, vocational skills and employability training options.

Action Mental Health knows that financial anxiety and money worries can have serious impacts on people’s mental wellbeing. The current cost of living crisis means that it is more important than ever that we support people to look after their mental health.

For Savings Week 2022, Action Mental Health has written Five Top Tips on ways to support your mental health and wellbeing at times when money is on your mind or you are facing financial challenges.

The Consumer Council

We are also partnering with The Consumer Council, who have supported Northern Ireland Savings week since it began in 2018. They provide free, independent support and advice for all consumers and businesses in Northern Ireland and are here to make sure that those who are trying to save know where to start.

With the cost of living continuing to rise, many of us are worried about the months ahead. The Consumer Council has a number of tips to help you save money as you navigate the cost of living crisis, looking at how you spend money, knowing where it is going and reducing some of your costs. 

The Consumer Council’s free online budgeting tool provides you with a tailored report that allows you to easily review your comings and goings and see where you may be able to cut back a little.

You can also read through our Savings Guide, featuring tips and advice from the Consumer Council helping you to support your financial management in the months and years ahead.
