Financial Capability Project
Our Financial Capability work aims to be proactive and preventative. It is about giving people the skills, knowledge and confidence to make the financial choices that are right for them and help them avoid crises.
Usually it involves sessions on money management, understanding credit, banking, savings and how to deal with debt. Depending on the group, we often cover finding good deals and bargains, customer rights, value in contracts for mobiles and utilities, dealing with bailiffs, or pensions and insurance.
Our sessions are designed to be interactive and engaging to help reinforce learning. Programmes are based on age, ability and the requirements and objectives of the group requesting the sessions. They could be a one-off course or a short series depending on the needs of the group.
Resources are developed by the CAB and the tutor delivering the sessions is CRB checked. All we ask in return is a donation to the CAB for buying the expertise of our qualified and fully trained volunteers to prepare, produce materials and deliver a professional session.
