Your Money Your Future

We are Bawso. We provide specialist services for Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) people across Wales. These include protection for those at risk of modern slavery, forced marriage and honour-based violence, female genital mutilation, domestic abuse and sexual violence, as well as support for those affected by these issues.

Thank you for supporting our Your Money Your Future project, which will help BME people in Cardiff to gain the knowledge, confidence and skills to increase the financial resilience of their households.

This funding will let us deliver 168 ‘My Money My Future’ surgeries and nine ‘Talking About Money’ training courses (36 sessions), reaching 948 vulnerable, local BME participants. We will train NatWest volunteers on how to advise BME clients and co-design the ‘Talking about Money’ training programme to meet the needs of BME learners. The funding will also pay for a member of staff to gain the ‘Certificate in Money Advice Practice’ to give specialist debt and benefits advice.
