About this event

The aim of the Financial Capability Project is to empower ethnic minority (EM) communities across Scotland to become more confident and better informed about the financial choices and decisions they make to help improve their resilience for the future.

This is one of the 12 interactive workshops we will be delivering this year. These workshops will be targeting EM men/women/young adults and the wider EM communities who might be struggling to manage their money on a daily basis.
