At a time when households are coming under increasing financial pressure due to changes to benefits and tax credits, increasingly irregular and low incomes, and high living costs; through the ‘Building Financially Health Communities’ event series, the Financial Health Exchange aim to integrate top practitioners in financial health and stimulate thought provoking discussion on how we can support households to deal with these pressures and build their financial health.
Join us, the Financial Health Exchange, for the next instalment of our ‘Building Financially Healthy Communities’ event series which will be taking place in Liverpool aton October 20th. The event series aim to bring together a broad range of individuals from the financial health sector, to re-examine what we are aiming to achieve as a sector and how we can go about delivering meaningful change.
Guest speakers will include:
- Christopher Standish from Regenda Homes, whose team is increasingly recognised as being at the fore-front of community regeneration. He will be discussing their Creative Credit project his regeneration programme and how financial inclusion fits in.
- Paul Cooke and Mick Bennett from St Pauls Community Advice Centre in Kirkdale; an advice centre which offers specialist advice on issues such as welfare benefits, debt and money, employment and housing
- John Smith and Jim Murray from Liverpool Pound
- Tracy Fairhurst from Birmingham City Council. Tracy will share insights from the Illegal Money Lending team and what other organisations can do to help tackle the problem.
In the afternoon we will hold workshops discussing the role communication plays in supporting people with their money; and explore how we can lessen the burden of the poverty premium.
