Money in the Community is a new initiative to tackle debt, financial hardship and fuel poverty in London. The project is a partnership between London debt and money advice specialists Money A+E and Fair Money Advice. It is funded by British Gas Energy Trust (BGET). The service supports Diverse Ethnic Communities and disadvantaged groups. It will target the economic harm done to those communities as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Money in the Community service is delivered by telephone or video. It will initially focus on relieving clients’ financial hardship through support with debt, benefits and emergency grants. Clients will be supported to improve their long-term financial stability, through training and guidance on budgeting, savings habits and making better energy choices. In this way the project aims to make long-term reductions in fuel poverty and reduce financial hardship.
