Money Matters, our financial education service, provides people with the financial knowledge, skills and confidence to help them plan for the long term.
For financial inclusion to be achieved, people need to be supported to have, as a minimum, some basic financial skills, product knowledge and understanding.The aim should be that every citizen has access to an appropriate range of financial products and services, which allows them to effectively manage their money, regardless of their level of income or social status. With approximately 1.5 million adults having no access to a bank account and 7.8 million people in the UK unable to access mainstream credit we are facing a situation in that many people are financially excluded.
If you are struggling to make ends meet, losing sleep thinking about how you will pay your bills or simply want to know of ways to save money please contact us.
Tailored financial education courses for client groups
We provide financial education training to a number client groups and organisations. We have recently tailored courses for youth workers, young people, schools, parent groups and members of the military. A major example of this has been working with members of the local armed forces and their families as part of the Military Covenant, to provide them with information and support on money management. Courses were specifically designed for military personnel and involved workshops and a fun “pub style” quiz for over 60 staff.
Courses for frontline workers on financial inclusion and debt
We provide financial inclusion courses for our partners in the community as well as offering courses on our training programmes. If you would like to attend one of our financial inclusion or introduction to debt courses please click here.
