Helper Course: Helping Members manage money

Every day Helpers strive to support Five Good Friends members maintain their independence, including independence with their money. However, there are times when Members need some assistance from those around them, including Helpers.

When assisting Members, Helpers must anticipate risks for Members and ensure Members are not at risk of any harm. Helpers also need to consider any risks to themselves. It is a difficult balance and requires the useful tool of stop, think and go.

We have prepared a short animation on how to and when to use the Stop, Think, Act decision-making tool when dealing with Member's money.
