Hertfordshire County Council in partnership with organisations from the voluntary and community sector across Hertfordshire have been successful in securing funding from The Big Lottery Building Better Opportunities Fund (BBO). BBO is the result of the Big Lottery matching funds from the European Social Fund for projects across England that tackle poverty and promote social inclusion.
As a result of this partnership, Wenta is delivering support across Hertfordshire to help to address barriers into self-employment (STRIVE project) and to help people build financial confidence and capability (MILE project).
Through a highly interactive team based session, participants get the opportunity to develop the life of a character and explore their financial situation. Teams will explore the character’s finance options for saving, borrowing and budgeting; making key financial decisions and aspirations for the future.
