Kirklees Financial Inclusion Event
10th November 2011
On 10th November 2011 the Financial Inclusion Steering Group (FISG) held an event to feedback the results of 2 pieces of research, 'The impact of financial inclusion interventions on the economy of Kirklees and 'A community perspective - results of a survey of two distinct neighbourhoods in Kirklees'.
The event was aimed at those whose work involves Financial Inclusion. Attendance was good and the day was successful in bringing partners together to share opinions and to discuss possible ways forward as well as linking into Kirklees Council's Poverty Strategy.
