£66,000 over three years has been awarded to West London Mission. It allows them to appoint a Lead Money Champion at St Luke’s Hub. This post will add additional capacity to enable additional key-worker support where advice/signposting by itself is insufficient. S/he will offer 1-1 support appointments (typically over a 3-6 month period) to people referred by the wider network of Lambeth Money Champions (volunteers trained to have initial conversations with people about their money worries, offering useful tips and signposting to the help and professional advice they might need). S/he will also facilitate a weekly peer support group.
These listings follow a blog format - comments are welcome (use the 'add comment' link).
We especially welcome comments from grantees telling us how the project is going
