Young People & Families Money Advice Support Project
The project will specialise in providing advice, information and representation service to young people and families with vulnerable children. By encouraging the uptake of benefit and tax credit entitlements, the project will seek to reduce the level of income spent on non essential debts, encourage more efficient use of fuel and promote cheaper methods of paying for fuel. Employing one part time money advisor, the service will be delivered on an outreach and referral basis.
