Islington People’s Rights (IPR) has a new financial education programme, targeted at the most vulnerable individuals and groups in our community. The Financial Skills for Life programme helps individuals to increase their long-term money-management skills and financial awareness, and links to the debt advice work delivered by IPR. This programme benefits those at risk of becoming financially excluded due to poverty, mental illness, homelessness and other factors. Financial Skills for Life is funded by the Natwest Skills and Opportunities Fund.
We provide one-to-one support sessions that focus on debt awareness, budgeting and planning ahead financially, at our offices at The Manor Gardens Centre in Holloway, with one our experienced specialist caseworkers. Clients can book an appointment or contact us for financial capability support, or debt advice, by ringing the IPR Advice Line on 020 7561 3685 on Monday, Tuesday or Friday between 2 and 4pm.
