Partnership Opportunity: Provision of Financial Capability Support for Building Better Opportunities Projects in Lancashire (2021-2022)

Applications are invited from suitably qualified and experienced organisation/s to provide specialist support to improve a participant’s financial capabilities from each of the three projects. Projects; Age of Opportunity, Invest in Youth and Changing Futures work across the whole of Lancashire. Our projects have been in operation for approximately 4 years during this time it has become evident that a significant proportion of BBO participants are experiencing exclusion from the labour market due to financial limitations. These relate to the participants personal financial situation or insecure home, and as such these circumstances act as a barrier to progression for the individual.

Proposals are sought from organisation/s that can support this important function helping participants remove barriers which present a major obstacle to them. Financial barriers often relate to the balance between benefits and employment income, poor financial management and debt, and in many cases need access to affordable care provision for dependants. Participants would access this specialist support via a referral from one of the current delivery partners within the relevant BBO project either at the start of their journey if financial circumstances are a limiting factor to full participation, or alongside other support activities whilst they are on project.
