Renfrewshire Money and Benefits info session: how to help those you work with
September 30, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree
October 4-10 is Challenge Poverty Week 2021 and in Renfrewshire we’re working together to ensure that benefits and money advice for people in vulnerable situations is the very best it can.
Join us on Thursday 30 September at 10am-10.55am for a cross sector event aimed at anyone working or volunteering with people who need support with benefits and money management.
We’ll be providing an overview of the benefits and grants available to families with dependent children living in Scotland. We’ll also be discussing local credit options, and how asking the right questions can help reduce the stigma of poverty.
Participants will learn what is available in terms of benefits and credit, how to gather information sensitively and effectively, and where to go for further information on these and other financial matters.
This event is a collaborative effort by Renfrewshire Council, Renfrewshire HSCP and Engage. Book here https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/money-and-benefits-information-session-tickets-168112471929 for this MS Teams event.
This event will be filmed and will then be mass distributed through out Renfrewshire during Challenge Poverty Week and everyone who works with people will be encouraged to watch it. It is a collaborative event and due to this there is wide reaching networking and good opportunity for distribution and discussion.
