Making Your Money Work

The Housing Executive’s Making Your Money Work Service is tailored to improve your overall wellbeing by not only maximising money management skills with tips on how to budget and save money, but also providing the appropriate services you need.

We can connect you to a number of services in your local area including:

  • free Benefit Entitlement Checks through the Make the Call service
  • and we can arrange referrals to other specialised housing support service providers
