Project Longhurst: The Money Charity’s Refugee and Asylum Seeker Programme

Chris Broome – Chartered Financial Planner

We promised to bring you regular updates on our corporate charitable giving programme, ‘Project Longhurst’, which aims to support organisations involved in humanitarian, animal welfare, environmental and financial education causes.

Here’s an update from our Financial Education partner, The Money Charity, about their Refugee and Asylum Seeker Programme – a series of 5 fully-funded Financial Wellbeing Workshops.

The Money Charity

The programme has been developed in conjunction with The Refugee Council, available fully-funded (free-of-charge) for any charity or community organisation working with people from a refugee background and people seeking asylum.

In addition to the many challenges facing people arriving in a new country, they are also confronted with a completely new and complex financial system. This can lead to financial exclusion and increased vulnerability.

The sessions cover the following areas:

• Introduction to the UK Financial System
• Budgeting & Savings
• Credit & Debt
• Energy
• Safe Money
