Year End UpdateThis project is now drawing to an end with WNF ceasing in June 2012. Originally set up to be sustainable with funding through the Legal Services Commission (LSC), reductions to LSC funding, particularly for employment and debt, will mean that outreach provision in Bolsover will be reduced from April 2012. Bolsover and Shirebrook outreach will continue but South Normanton and Creswell will close. However, moving into 2012/13 Chesterfield Law Centre is committed to its involvement in the Bolsover Financial Inclusion Forum, facilitated by CVP.

Financial Inclusion Project

 

About the project...

This project was commissioned to deliver the Bolsover District Financial Inclusion Strategy agreed by the Bolsover Partnership covering the period 2009-2014. Its aim was to reduce levels of financial exclusion in the district by:

  • Improving the co-ordination of financial inclusion activity in the district
  • Increasing access to free and impartial advice
  • Increasing access to affordable credit
  • Increasing the capacity of local people to make informed financial decisions
