‘Made of Money’ is running a 2 day Facilitator Training in London on 5th – 6th October 2016.
‘Made of Money’ is an award winning financial literacy resource, developed by anti-poverty charity Quaker Social Action. It aims to help groups talk about money and its impact on their lives, as well as learn vital money management skills. It is ideal to help front line workers offer support to those on low income, particularly in the run up to the introduction of Universal Credit, and all the welfare benefit changes.
‘Made of Money’ takes a different and innovative approach to financial literacy: it works holistically- with the whole person and the whole household. The resources aim to build confidence; resilience and help people identify their own values and attitudes around money, as well as covering basics like budgeting, borrowing and debt. We recognise that unless people’s own situations are explored and confidence is increased, they won’t change behavior long–term. This in turn builds a more stable platform for the whole household financially.
‘Made of Money’ also focuses on emotions around money, our experiences growing up, consumer culture, communication about money & the pressure of raising children on low income. The resources are all provided, fully reusable as well as really fun and engaging!
