Economic Support Network

This network is building an ecosystem of economic support that values worth beyond wealth and maximises opportunities to tackle scarcity.  It includes 20+ VCFSE Partners and is co-hosted by Action Together and Citizens Advice.

The Economic Support Network has recently co-designed a Financial Support Tool to help people facing financial difficulty identify where they can go for key support need. It can be used by people in Rochdale borough themselves, or frontline workers / volunteers supporting them. To access the tool click here. Contact if you would like some printed copies or a version to host on your own website. Click here for training on using the Financial Support Toolkit.
