For Refugees and Asylum Seekers
We have a tailor-made programme of Financial Wellbeing Workshops, developed in conjunction with The Refugee Council, available fully-funded (free of charge) for any charity or community organisation working with people from a refugee background and people seeking asylum.
In addition to the many challenges facing people arriving in a new country, they are also confronted with a completely new and complex financial system. This can lead to financial exclusion and increased vulnerability.
Our series of 2-hour Workshops, suitable for up to 15 attendees, are available for face-to-face or virtual delivery and can be delivered with, or without, interpretation*. Any of the five sessions can be booked as a stand-alone, or organisations may wish to book the whole series.
The sessions cover the following areas:
• Introduction to the UK Financial System
• Budgeting & Savings
• Credit & Debt
• Safe Money
“I just wanted to say thank you so much for providing our members with the opportunity to attend your Workshops on managing their money and banking in the UK. The feedback we have received has been very positive! It’s an area that always causes a lot of worry for our members and this is the first time we have been able to run Workshops focusing on it. I can’t emphasise enough how valuable it has been” (Refugee Charity)
“In a foreign country people don’t know a lot of things and also don’t have access to information, so they just talk to those they know in their communities. They should talk to those who have the knowledge and information. I can now share what I have learnt with others.” (Workshop Participant)
All attendees will receive a free digital copy of our Money Manual and a signposting handout which is available in the following languages: Albanian, Amharic, Arabic, Farsi, Kurdish Sorani and Tigrinya.
If you want to make a booking enquiry, schedule a further conversation with us or still have questions, just fill out the simple form here and we’ll be in touch. We’d love to work with you and together help more people to increase their Financial Wellbeing!
