Worrying about Money?

Worrying about Money?

Today sees the launch of Sheffield’s new ‘Worrying About Money?’ leaflet to help people experiencing financial insecurity, and those supporting them, to easily identify and access appropriate financial support and advice. By helping people access any existing financial entitlements and advice,the hope is to reduce the need for emergency food aid.

The Sheffield ‘Worrying About Money?’ leaflet is a step-by-step guide that:

  • starts with the money problem situation/s someone might be facing (Step1)
  • explains the options available that could help (Step 2)
  • includes contact information for local organisations that can directly support people with these options (Step 3)

Partner organisations coproducing the leaflet include Sheffield City Council, Voluntary Action Sheffield, Together for Sheffield, the Independent Food Aid Network, the Trussell Trust and Citizens Advice Sheffield.

Sheffield is one of the first local authorities in England to have a ‘Worrying About Money?’ leaflet. These cash first referral leaflets have been successfully co-developed in 15 local authorities in Scotland and work is underway to co-produce further leaflets in local authorities across England, Scotland and Wales.

The roll-out of this resource in Sheffield will be supported by future training sessions designed for food bank staff, volunteers and other frontline workers.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)
