S.A.F.E. Team

S.A.F.E. stands for Support, Advice, Finance and Education. Our team of S.A.F.E. support workers are trained to support those facing financial difficulty or navigating the welfare system. The S.A.F.E. team provides a more holistic, person-centred support that responds to often multiple and complex, needs of people struggling to get by on benefits and low incomes.

Our History

CFINE’s Financial Capability project and the Cash in your Pocket have now merged to create the new S.A.F.E team. The team have been learning new and efficient systems to help with the new project as it develops. 

Reflecting on the Financial Capability project - up until April 2019 - it had been very pleasing. The Financial Capability Officers have engaged with over 760 individuals annually.  By utilising more efficient systems and working methods, the S.A.F.E. team is working towards providing support to even more individuals than the Financial Capability Officers did.

Funders

The initiative is funded by the Fairer Aberdeen Fund and The Scottish Government.
