Money Counts training for Cornwall: Promoting a cash first approach to food insecurity

The Cornwall ‘Worrying About Money?’ leaflet is a straightfoward resource for people facing financial crisis and support workers to quickly see available cash first support options and which local agencies are best placed to help.

Now more than ever, it is vital that people facing money worries are linked to cash first advice and support at the earliest opportunity. This one-hour online training session is designed for frontline staff and volunteers as well as elected representatives in Cornwall who may have brief conversations with people about their money worries or financial struggles as part of their work.

After the one-hour session you will:

  • be fully aware of the local financial advice and cash first support options currently available in Cornwall
  • feel confident about using the Cornwall ‘Worrying about money?’ leaflet to potentially ask people about wider money worries and guide them to appropriate support
  • understand more about the importance of a ‘cash first’ approach to growing food insecurity and poverty

This training session will be led by Emma Greenwood, Trussell Trust, Abby Preston, IFAN, Anne Redelinghuys, Transformation Cornwall and include contributions from Citizens Advice Cornwall and Cornwall MIND.
