The Project Overview

The FISCAL Project

After an intense but rewarding 6 months, our FISCAL project has now come to an end.

Launched in August 2019 by Wolverhampton Learning Platform CIC and funded by The Black Country ESF Community Grant, its aim was to support 30 economically inactive beneficiaries with a variety of barriers to improve their skills, address and overcome their barriers, to secure employment or process into further education.

The project was carried out by the 5 partner organisations of the WLP, it focused on financial education, money management, better off in work calculations, confidence building, goal setting and targeted job search.

All-around Success!

The beneficiaries involved have shown marked improvements in their personal confidence and skill levels, this has led onto employment for some (Royal Mail, Community Care Roles, Office Admin,), volunteering for others (at Access2Business, Bridging The Gap, Kitchen Volunteer) and further education/training for many.

Success can be measured in many ways, qualifications, employment, are of course important, however the softer outcomes such as confidence building, teamwork, goal setting can make a difference in people’s lives. Building their self-esteem and self-belief, can go a long way to help find the employment they are looking for.

The Fiscal project helped in these areas as it was able to devote more time to support clients as a group or on 1-2-1 basis, in addition, the group developed a strong supportive bond and helped each other where needed.

During this program, 30 beneficiaries have been supported, with 7/8 of these going into paid employment, another 17 have progressed into further education or training to continue their journey towards employment.

The Project Details

The FISCAL Project

FISCAL works to empower beneficiaries to improve their financial education, money management, budgeting skills and financial confidence through workshops and one-to-one support. Sessions include how to be ‘better off in work or self-employment’. The project assist beneficiaries to gain skills and look for work.

The project runs 5 separate programmes with each of the 5 partners delivering one programme each in their identified location.

Beneficiaries learn financial management skills including and how to be less reliant on benefits. They discover ways to shop on a budget, food preparation on a budget and ways in which they can reduce spending. Each beneficiary is introduced to the Money Advice Service website to make them aware of the MAS budget calculators and to understand the benefits of earning income through employment.

During the previous Black Country Community Grant project “Back-on-Track” project Wolverhampton Learning Platform was able to support 52 unemployed clients providing a wide variety of employment related opportunities for people from a range of backgrounds and abilities.
