Event description

Description

Regional money advice group open to anyone working or volunteering in the free debt advice sector.

3 CPD points in the meetings & forums category for accredited IMA members and MASDAP-funded advisers.

_____________________________________________________________________

The agenda includes:

Legal and advice update provided by Shelter Specialist Debt Advice Service

Guest speaker 1 - Mubbashar Ali from Kirklees Citizens Advice & Law Centre explaining their new EU Settlement Scheme advice service, which is available across Yorkshire to help vulnerable EU nationals apply for settled or pre-settled status. This will be very important for debt advice clients who are EU nationals to ensure they retain access to benefits, housing and healthcare.

Guest speaker 2 - Gareth McNab, Money Advice Liaison Manager at Nationwide: Open Banking For Good - how can this technology build products and services that do good? Gareth will try and demystify open banking, outline the program that he’s been leading, and explore different use cases that may help financially squeezed consumers

Guest speaker 3 - Chris Bott, IMA Money Advice Specialist: Financial Statements - Does One Size Fit All? Chris examines whether the same financial statement works in every case, or should we adjust it depending on the intended use.

Tea and coffee will be available on the day, but please bring your own lunch.
