What is Financial Action & Advice Derbyshire?
Financial Action and Advice Derbyshire (FAAD) is a partnership of over 50 organisations who have joined forces to address financial exclusion by "taking action and giving advice to enable Derbyshire people to have enough to live on".
The term financial exclusion means people NOT having:
- Access to general financial services and products
- Skills, knowledge and confidence in dealing with money matters and making sound financial decision.
The partnership has worked at a strategic level across the county to support development of the Credit Unions, investigate the impact of sanctions on benefit claimants, coordinate the Food Bank Forum, deliver training for front line workers on welfare reforms and in partnership with Derbyshire County Council organised Derbyshire Money Week.
FAAD is currently developing The Money House Project, a financial education programme for young people leaving foster/residential care or supported accommodation to prepare them for living independently.
