Financial inclusion – Covid-19 Support

The Coronavirus pandemic has already had a significant effect on the economy, with many job losses, over a million people applying for Universal Credit and freelancers having work cancelled indefinitely.

The Just Finance Foundation are combatting financial distress and promoting financial inclusion through:

Coronavirus Financial Help Hub
The Hub has basic information on recent government but also links to expert websites. It is updated regularly with information, if and when it is released, and has sections on Universal Credit, Mortgages, Sick Pay, Debt and other key issues: https://www.justfinancefoundation.org.uk/coronavirus-help-hub

COVID Cash Course
A free course which upskills individuals and church communities to deliver information and resources on how to navigate the recent financial changes safely: https://www.justfinancefoundation.org.uk/covid-cash-course
