What is Financial Inclusion?
The term financial inclusion means people having:
- Access to general financial services and products
- Skills, knowledge and confidence in dealing with money matters and making sound financial decisions
Financial Action and Advice Derbyshire (FAAD) is a partnership of over 50 organisations who have joined forces to address these issues by "taking action and giving advice to enable Derbyshire people to have enough to live on".
If you are worried about money visit the FAAD website for information and access to advice.
FAAD is part of the Building Better Opportunities - Sheffield City Region project.
“Building Better Opportunities - Sheffield City Region (BBO SCR) is an integrated, person-centred employment service for people with physical and mental health conditions, learning disabilities and complex needs. It’s based on Individual Placement Support, a “place then train” approach that’s shown to be twice as effective as traditional approaches. The BBO SCR Partnership will support 642 adults over the next 2 years to find competitive employment and training opportunities. BBO SCR has received £2.7million of funding from the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund as part of the 2014-2020 European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme in England.”
