what we do

Improving financial resilience

The partnerships goal is to improve the financial well-being and livelihoods of people and communities in Nottingham.  Helping to improve resilience to financial shocks and pressures without the need to resort to high cost, exploitative credit.  Reducing levels of over-indebtedness.  Ensuring people can access relevant and responsible financial products and have the confidence and capability to deal with money well.  A key element is to try to increase the income level of people struggling on low incomes in the city.

"Improving people’s resilience against financial shocks and pressures. Includes improving financial well-being and stability, ensuring people can access relevant financial products and have the capability to deal with money well."

Nottingham Financial Resilience Action Plan

The partnership drafted a Financial Resilience Plan for Nottingham in Spring 2016.  This report sets out the scale of challenges in Nottingham using key data and in the context of national financial inclusion policy.  The report also summarises the priorities and common issues that emerged from the series of neighbourhood events in the Autumn of 2015.

Following feedback on our draft report the partnership then developed an Action Plan setting out the key strategic aims and the ways in which the Steering Group and Core Group are working to achieve these aims. This is intended as very much a living document. Details of the positive impacts that the partnership is beginning to have are provided on the impact page.


Emma Bates, Sessional worker for the partnership, has designed and now delivers front-line work for the partnership.
