Letchworth Financial Health Project
Being financially capable gives people the power and confidence to make the most of their money and improve their lives. Managing money well – both day-to-day and through significant life events like starting a family or moving home, helps to alleviate stress and improve general wellbeing.
This project is being funded by the Letchworth Heritage Foundation
About the Project
Together with the Letchworth Heritage Foundation we identified a shared desire to make an enduring intervention to address the issues of inequality and poor living standards In Letchworth. This is a 3 year project which commenced in 2020 – its aims are:
- to improve people’s standard of living and well-being in the town
- to help residents increase their financial awareness & capability
- to enable and empower people to deal with crises as they arise

Book your own bespoke workshop
In addition to the regular workshops held at Create Community, we are also happy to deliver directly to any group or organization you are affiliated with, for example we have already delivered workshops at:
Alternatively, if you would like to deliver these workshops yourselves to your clients then we will be more than happy to share our materials and provide training.
A really important strand of this project is building relationships with local community groups and companies, to ensure people are aware of what we can offer both in terms of individual advice and community support.
We have been really fortunate to have been invited to various meetings and events over the last 12 months, such as the Acorns family fun day and the Garden Academy Summer Fayre, please see our news pages for more details.
And we are really keen to attend a lot more – so please get in touch If you would like us to come along to your organisation or group meeting or any special event, call or text 07551 275413 or fill out the form at the bottom this page and leave your details.
We post regularly on North Herts Citizens Advice Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. In addition, we have our own Facebook group page specifically for this project where members can ask financial health questions and share tips/ideas. Please join us at Letchworth Financial Health | Facebook
