FAB kiaa event – 12th Jan – cost of living crisis network

Thanks to everyone who attended – if you missed it and want to catch up on the slides and info, then ping me an email and I will send you the link to materials.

It was great to see Ian from the Foodbank there and for us (well Michelle actually) to share the great work that Tessa and Katie are doing there in partnership with FB colleagues. We are offering help to address the underlying issues for people currently using the FB so that they don’t need it in the future.

Michelle confirmed that in the first 8 sessions, we have seen 20 people with 84 issues and several of whom did not know about the Household Support Fund and were directed there for help. Our estimates show that the help we have offered should result in about £18,000 financial gains for these 20 clients  – which is a FAB outcome for a much needed, and modest project.

onwards and upwards and well done Tessa, Katie and Michelle and many many thanks to Ian and his team for welcoming us in…
