Embedding Cash First Approaches

25th November 2021

The first event focused on strengthening referral pathways and the tools and strategies that people in Scotland are using to empower frontline staff and volunteers to help people facing food insecurity access existing financial grants and entitlements.

Speakers discussed how practical resources like the ‘Worrying About Money?’ leaflets and Money Counts training courses are helping to build confidence to have ‘quality conversations’ and make active referrals to financial advice and support when someone is financial insecurity.
