Money Counts training for Wandsworth: Promoting a cash first approach to food insecurity
The Wandsworth ‘Worrying About Money?’ leaflet is a straightforward resource for people facing financial crisis and support workers to quickly see available cash first support options and which local agencies are best placed to help.
Now more than ever, it is vital that people facing money worries are linked to cash first advice and support at the earliest opportunity. This one-hour online training session is designed for frontline staff and volunteers in Kingston who may have brief conversations with people about their money worries or financial struggles as part of their work.
After the one-hour session you will:
- be fully aware of the local financial advice and cash first support options currently available in Kingston
- feel confident about using the Kingston ‘Worrying about money?’ leaflet to ask people about wider money worries and guide them to appropriate support
- understand more about the importance of a ‘cash first’ approach to growing food insecurity and poverty
We will be running the session on Tue 2nd May 10-11am. Link to the session will be shared on the day.
