About the project
The Financial Literacy in Marginalised Communities project aims to increase the financial literacy of marginalised, refugee and NEET youth communities who are at an increased disadvantage in day-to-day life due to their comparatively low level of financial literacy. We aim to provide these groups with the support and training they need to bridge the gap in their skills, knowledge and attitudes towards financial literacy.
The 5 European partners involved in the project are:
- Eurospeak Language Schools Ltd (UK) – eurospeak.org.uk
- Danmar Computers (Poland) – danmar-computers.com.pl
- Accion Laboral (Spain) – accionlaboral.com
- Essenia UETP (Italy) – esseniauetp.it
- SPES GmbH (Austria) – spes.co.at
The project was inspired by recent Erasmus+ projects (FLY Project, The Home Budget Management Project), and the growing communities and groups (such as refugees, traveller communities, NEET youths) which are disadvantaged to the extent that they are limited by the cultural habits and perceived cultural norms when it comes to financial management and financial literacy.
We expect that upon the completion of the project, members of the in direct target group (VET teachers and trainers) involved in piloting and those reached through the intensive dissemination strategy will increase their capacity to provide high quality learning opportunities to marginalised and disadvantaged learners.
We hope to achieve these goals, by producing the following intellectual outputs:
- A Handbook on the relationship between Financial Literacy and Community Culture
- A Framework for a Financial Literacy Curriculum
- An e-Course on Financial Literacy for Marginalised Communities
