Creative Pathways to Smart Money

Our successful ‘Creative Pathways to Smart Money’ project was a two-year project to help people (aged 18 to 65) struggling with financial hardship and ‘mild to moderate’ mental health problems in Cornwall. The project received funded of £99,989.00 by Comic Relief. We delivered innovative financial literacy workshops based on client’s interests, which included art therapy, cooking, and growing your own fruit and vegetables, combined with one-to-one counselling; debt advice; and literacy and numeracy support. The project reduced client’s debts; improved their wellbeing and financial capability; and positively changed client’s behaviour towards spending and saving.

Money Smart

Our successful ‘Money Smart’ project was a one-year project funded by the RBS Natwest Skills and Opportunities Fund. Our fun and hands-on, financial literacy workshops used creativity and recycled materials to address adverse money habits and used practical tools to assist with personal budgeting. Each workshop included a theme and discussion around issues such as ‘short term fulfilment’, setting SMART money goals, understanding loans and APR, managing a personal budget, handling creditors, maximising income, and savings. The creative workshops were designed to be hands-on and based around hobbies. The group sessions ran alongside one-to-one debt advice and employment coaching.

Family Finance

Our six-week accredited family finance course was funded by the Britannia Foundation and is embedded with L1 and L2 Numeracy. Participants learnt about budgeting, income maximisation, savings, pensions, financial jargon, credit and debt management, whilst achieving a City & Guilds L1 or L2 Numeracy qualification.
