Please Vote For Us

We have been short-listed for the RBS Skills and Opportunities Fund and we need your vote!

With the help of your vote the funding will allow us to provide our ‘Money&Me/Money Mentors’ project, which aims to improve the financial literacy of people who have a learning disability, through workshops, backed up with one-to-one support sessions.  We also want to increase the project reach and employability of participants, by empowering them to go on and train their peers in money-management issues.

We will use the funding to develop and deliver a series of 8-week workshops to equip 56 people with learning difficulties with the skills and confidence to manage their limited financial resources effectively. The workshops will involve groups of six to eight people and will run eight times, so we’ll reach between 48 to 64 people overall. We’ll also provide participants with one-to-one support from project staff and the opportunity to develop further by becoming a mentor to their peers in subsequent workshops.

Money management is something that our members ask for help with time and time again and when asked what workshops they would like us to deliver this is a topic which always comes up. By voting for us you will help us to deliver a project which the members want and is really important to them

Voting takes a couple of minutes and you don’t need to enter any personal information just pick Mencap Liverpool and submit.
