Poverty Awareness Training - last remaining spaces available!
Archived news: published on Monday 12 Feb 2018 by Fife Council
Poverty affects a significant proportion of the Fife population and can have a big impact on many areas of peoples’ lives. This can include their mental health and wellbeing, their ability to develop skills, find or maintain employment and can threaten basic needs such as access to food and housing.
The recent roll out of full service Universal Credit has created additional challenges for a number of people and there is also increasing evidence about the numbers of people currently working who are struggling to make ends meet.
We’ve had a great response so far to our training for all public and voluntary sector workers, with most courses already fully booked.
A small number of spaces are still available for our course ‘Supporting low income families manage benefit change’ on 13th March at the Bay Hotel, Kinghorn. This course is delivered by Child Poverty Action Group (Scotland) and funded by Fife Partnership, so is free of charge.
To book a place please complete the application form (under publications) or contact Kelly Higgins on 01592 226561 (internal 46561) or at Kelly.Higgins@nhs.net
If you’re unable to attend one of our courses, free e-learning is also available. ‘Supporting Hard-Up Households’ has been designed for people working in Fife, and once registered for e-learning, courses on Universal Credit and Welfare Reform designed by CPAG are available to complete.
