Financial Inclusion Advice for Parents (FIAP)
Money Matters with our sub-contractor GEMAP Scotland delivers a service offering Financial Advice for Parent across Glasgow. The settings may include Nurseries and Primary Schools and together with Employability Services would offer a comprehensive Financial Inclusion Service.
We will utilise Action plans for the clients for all their advice issues/need to chart their progress, offering spending diaries and other tangible activities regarding financial capability to aid practical skills.
The outcomes for our target client group will be to Increased Income from employment; improve on the level of gains achieved for our FIAP clients e.g., welfare benefits and grants; Debt Managed – debt strategies implemented from full gamut of viable options; Financial Capability improved – minimise expenditure, exposure to appropriate financial products, tackling fuel and food insecurity, new bank accounts, savings, budgeting support, appropriate insurances; Referrals – to appropriate other services within GCC and beyond e.g. Glasgow Helps or externally smoking cessation etc.
If you reside in Glasgow and have a child under the age of 18 years, you can be referred via Glasgow Life’s Family Finance Key Workers. We are also about to commence work at Cuthbertson Primary where we will have a Money Matters Officer present on a Thursday morning when you are dropping your child at school.
