Mostofa Uddin, experienced development worker at Made of Money, is looking forward to attending an RSL and ALMO Financial Inclusion Forum in Manchester on the 28th September.
The forum will be focusing on priorities for tenants as the universal credit roll-out extends, particularly around budgeting.
Chaired by Elaine Wilkinson of Southway Housing Trust, the 18 attendees will be staff from housing associations and other organisations for whom financial inclusion is a live issue.
Quaker Social Action has experience of working with social housing tenants in Haringey, Tower Hamlets, Newham, Hackney and Bournemouth. Many of the organisations who have taken up our financial capability training have used our approach to support tenants to develop longer term strategies to avoid difficulties paying rent.
Mostofa will set out what Made of Money can offer to housing associations and other organisations concerned with helping service users develop financial resilience.
