DataBridge – the groups!

I’m very happy to say that we have six groups who have agreed to take part in the DataBridge project. Together, we’ll be looking at how the links between their work and financial inclusion.

Here is a little bit about the groups:

The Advice Partnership aims to ensure increased access to high quality advice services for residents in the City.

East Sussex Credit Union is a not for profit savings and loans co-operative and aims to provide a high quality, sustainable and easy to access savings and loans co-operative, which is responsive to the needs of the people of Brighton & Hove and actively combats the detrimental effects of poverty and financial exclusion.

Amaze gives information, advice and support to parents of children with special needs and disabilities in Brighton & Hove. They work to empower parents to help their children live fully socially included lives.

The Carers Centre for Brighton & Hove is a local charity which exists to support anyone caring for a partner, relative or friend who needs help because of illness disability, substance misuse or old age.

Mind Out is a service for people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or trangendered and have mental health concerns.

Grassroots CIC is a community interest company that supports communities to prevent suicide. They are specialists in suicide prevention and deliver training that saves lives.

Each group will have a more detailed profile in time, and I hope they will be able to contribute to the blog to share their experiences as we go along. Welcome to you all!
