An estimated 20 million adults have seen their financial situation worsen significantly as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, according to the Financial Conduct Authority, which regulates the banking sector. 

MoneyHelper’s Couch to Financial Fitness plan is a free, step-by-step programme designed to help you manage your money, inspired by the popular Couch to 5K app.

It guides people through three simple activities a week over four weeks, to help them understand money basics, followed by a five-week extension to strengthen financial habits. 

It is now available to everyone via the recently-launched MoneyHelper website – part of the government-backed Money and Pensions Service.
