Tackling Financial Insecurity in Nottinghamshire report published

Posted 12.08.2022

Many people in both urban and rural parts of Nottinghamshire currently have debt problems, are struggling with food or fuel poverty and are feeling financially insecure.  Financial difficulty affects people of all ages and poor financial wellbeing has a knock-on effect on:

  • mental and physical health
  • housing and homelessness
  • children’s health and wellbeing
  • acquisitive crime
  • business sustainability
  • workforce skills

Chaired by our Building Better Opportunities Manager for Nottinghamshire, Maria Ward, representatives from organisations that work closely in our most affected communities met to hear about the findings from a recent mapping exercise in financial resilience in Nottinghamshire and an opportunity to help shape a plan to co-ordinate and streamline services to tackle Financial Insecurity in Nottinghamshire.
