Masthead Square Covid Cash

Covid Cash Course

COVID Cash Recovery (CCR) is a free online course which up-skills churches, charities, community leaders and organisations to provide information and resources, to help their communities recover from money issues that have arisen due to COVID-19.

Due to the financial chaos of the Coronavirus, it can be difficult for people to know what they’re entitled to, all the options of support that are available to them and how to cope financially.

COVID Cash Recovery is a 2 hour webinar workshop which trains you to help others through giving accurate information and signposting. The workshop covers:

  • General entitlements
  • Universal Credit
  • Budgeting
  • Government and charitable grants
  • Money strategies for making it through these next few months
  • Help with bills
  • Debt

Generously supported by Allchurches Trust, the National Lottery and Nationwide, over 1,700 churches, charities, organisations and community leaders have so far been trained.

These sessions are run by our national colleagues - Just Finance Foundation

    Are you one of these 1 in 6 people with a lived experience of a disability?

    At least 1 in 6 people in our communities (significantly more in those aged 60+) are impacted by difficulties with mobility, vision, hearing, or living with some kind of physical or mental disability - many of them hidden.

    The Enabling Church team would love you to join their network. They'll be offering regular online meetings to help people share their experiences and build relationships with others from around the diocese.
