  • Poverty Awareness Training - Supporting Hard Up Households

    Created: 09/02/2017

    The training programme contains a range of courses and e-learning opportunities that will be useful and relevant to anyone working with individuals and families in Fife who are struggling to make ends meet.

    Changes to the welfare system – including the benefit cap introduced in November 2016 and the planned move to ‘full service’ Universal Credit from December 2017 – are affecting more and more people across Fife.

    The courses cover issues such as the practical skills that will help you to recognise when someone has money worries, and what you can do to help; to more in-depth skills and knowledge on specific issues related to benefits and particular groups of the population.

    All the courses are open to all public and voluntary sector workers in Fife and are free to attend.

    This training programme is funded by Fife Partnership, through its recommendations in Fairness Matters, the report from the Fairer Fife Commission to address poverty and inequality in Fife. Training sessions are delivered by the Poverty Alliance, Child Poverty Action Group in Scotland, and One Parent Families Scotland.
