The WEA: Adult Learning Within Reach has places available on Financial First Aid workshops on the following dates:

6th Nov 1-3pm
11th Nov 6-8pm
14th Nov 11am-1pm

The WEA is offering workshops in financial first aid. These workshops are aimed at community groups and organisations who might be working with people in financial difficulties as well as individuals looking to improve their financial first aid skills.

The workshops take a practical look at how we can deal with financial emergencies at the individual and community level. They help learners to identify emergencies, act quickly to aid those in crisis and connect them to specialist services and support networks.

Topics covered reflect the range of interlocking crises affecting people daily, such as benefits problems, redundancy, ill health, debt and eviction. Designed around the needs, interests and numeracy level of learners, the workshops use examples from daily life to increase learners’ confidence in dealing with the technical and confusing language of banks, employers, landlords and the benefits office.

Financial first aid skills help learners to respond to money problems more effectively, developing the understanding needed to identify the issues, know their rights and decide what action to take.

The initial workshop lasts for 2 hours but further workshops may be possible to look at particular topics in more detail. There will also be an extended course on Financial Citizenship in early 2021.

Learners will be provided with: financial first aid pack, copy of slides, list of resources, referring agencies and helplines.

Workshops will be delivered over Zoom.

If you or your group is interested in finding out more about financial first aid workshops or book a place, get in touch with Ed Garrett email: e.garrett@wea.org.uk
You only need to book one session.
