The Cost of Living crisis means now more than ever, it is vital that people with money worries are linked into support at the earliest opportunity.

The Gloucestershire ‘Worrying About Money?’ leaflets are a simple resource for people facing financial hardship – and those supporting them – to quickly see which agencies are best placed to help.

The leaflet has been compiled by Feeding Gloucestershire and the Independent Food Aid Network, co-designed with local partners including the Trussell Trust and the corresponding District Councils.

This free 1 hr online training session is for frontline organisations staff and volunteers in Gloucestershire, who may have brief conversations with people about their money worries.

This session will include contributions from the partners above and North and West Gloucestershire Citizens Advice.

After the session you will:

understand what a ‘cash first’ approach to food insecurity is
know what financial advice and support options are available in Gloucestershire
feel confident to ask people about money worries and guide them to support
