#92 | Results from 1st May

Here are the results from yesterday’s Mobilise Moments poll.

An unexpected bill

Yesterday we asked: How would you pay an unexpected £1000 bill?

While 55% of us have savings we can full back on, a further 42.5% of us would have to borrow, reduce spending elsewhere or simply don't know where we would get the money from.

Feeling financially vulnerable can be a great worry. If you are feeling financially vulnerable or if you are currently unable to make ends meet, then Turn 2 Us can offer information and may be able to also provide financial support. They have a section specifically for carers.

And for general counting the pennies, carers in our community have been sharing top tips on how to make our money go further.

Finally, please remember out free support calls are also available to help. A listening ear can be a great start to feeling better, organising thoughts and taking our first step.

Get support in your caring role, contact your local carer centre. Find out who is closest using this nifty tool from the Carers Trust.
