Financial Inclusion

People experiencing financial distress, particularly those on low incomes, are often reluctant to talk about their problems or seek help. And the complexity of different financial products and the benefits system often makes the idea of finding a solution seem impossible.

Sandwell Churches’ Link works closely with the Just Finance Foundation Black Country to tackle these issues and increase the supply of fair and affordable finance. Just Finance organise sessions to teach people about budgeting and money management so they can build their financial confidence. We also partner with Sandwell MBC and our local Citizen’s Advice to provide free financial capability training to church volunteers, because they might be the first person someone confides their money worries to.
