Aaina Community Hub

Tackling Money Worries

We are Aaina Community Hub, based in Central Walsall. We deliver life-enhancing opportunities for women of all ages and abilities, in particular those affected by economic hardship and marginalisation. Aaina provides pathways out of poverty through education, volunteering, support services and community engagement initiatives linked to enterprise and employment that lead to independence, empowerment and improved life choices.

Your funding allows us to start a new project, Tackling Money Worries, which will equip newly arrived and marginalised women living in poverty, with financial capability skills. We want to help them improve their budgeting and spending intelligence and online literacy skills, as well as showing them how to manage money and maximise income.

The project will address the impact of poverty on low-income families and provide wider opportunities leading to enterprise and employment, instil confidence and independence in the women taking part, aid personal development and reduce vulnerability. We want to enable women to make positive life choices that have a long-term impact, leading to pathways out of poverty.
