Southport Money Advice Group is holding a free learning exchange event on Wednesday 27th March 2019 in Southport. The event will discuss money as an issue nationally and locally and its impact on health and wellbeing.
With record levels of household debt, this event explores the changing policy context, the impact of debt on local communities and shows how residents and organisations in Southport are working together to improve access to money advice services.
The event is open to agencies and organisations who work with residents (e.g. community and resident’s groups, charities, statutory and third sector organisations and registered social landlords) and who want to find out more about money advice.
It will provide an opportunity to meet over lunch with service providers within the area and to learn more about other money and wellbeing services available in Southport.
The event is being organised by the Southport Money Advice Group and partners as part of a ‘Neighbourhood for Learning’ and is one of nine taking place across the North West.
The overarching Neighbourhood Resilience Programme aims to bring together residents, academics, local groups and services to research and improve underlying social, economic and environmental factors which affect people’s health and wellbeing.
You will hear about:
- Changing national money and health policy context
- The impact of financial difficulties on health and wellbeing
- Examples of how ‘Neighbourhoods for Learning’ are working together to change services to benefit local people
- How simple changes away from the negative language of debt can positively impact on people with financial difficulties
- What residents and organisations have done so far to improve access to money advice services in Southport
