We want to do everything we can to help our communities, ensuring that everyone understands and makes use of the support and opportunities available. At the end of the day, whilst many of us have no control over this situation and how long it might last, we do have control over how we build our own financial futures and adopt to everything that is happening around us.’
CEO of Netball Scotland and Strathclyde Sirens Claire Nelson states:
“With the impact of COVID-19 being felt by every person right across the UK, the aim of Netball Scotland and Strathclyde Sirens right now is to provide as much vital support and guidance to all of our fans, members, and anyone else who needs it, for as long as is needed. As part of this we will be focussing on financial health, planning and management as we know that a lot of people are worried about their finances at this time. Working with our amazing new Sirens Partners, Murphy Wealth, we will provide practical support, expertise, tips and advice to help our Netball Family to get through these uncertain and unprecedented times, as well as start to take control over planning the financial future that they want for themselves. We hope that this serves to be a useful service for people and continue to ask everyone to follow the Government guidelines to stay safe and healthy.”
