Using the tried and tested Family Independence Initiative model from the US – www.fii.org – we work with referral organisations to identify low income families who want to lift themselves out of poverty.
We facilitate access to three things which improve social mobility:
capital, choice and connections, which offer improved social mobility in the community.
We will work with Restart – www.restartrefugeesupport.org – who offer refugees interest loans subject to certain criteria.
This is being piloted in Leeds at present.
