brass is an exciting new financial wellbeing programme for Kirklees.

It’s been designed to help us all maximise our money, earning the most we can, spending and borrowing money in the most efficient ways, and reducing the risks and impacts that changes to financial circumstances can have.


Step by Step and Paddock Community Trust are bringing laptops and tablets to show people how they can search for jobs, access benefits and shop online. They will also be helping people to get the most out of their phones by downloading helpful apps. A bank advisor will be helping people set up telephone and internet banking and offering advice and support on all money matters including opening bank accounts.
