Episode 23 – Managing money in a crisis: truths, tips and avoiding trouble

If close to half of police officers in Cheshire were worrying daily about money last winter, then how do they feel about their circumstances now?

Dan Lever, equality and wellbeing lead for Cheshire Police Federation, tells host Andrew Simpson what impact poor financial wellbeing has on performance.

And, against the backdrop of inflation in the UK reaching double digits for the first time in 40 years, Tom Howban and Adam Norris from Reflect Financial recommend practical steps officers can take straightaway to ease pressure on themselves and their families.
