KNOW IT, LIVE IT, CHANGE IT

DETAILS 


The Know it, Change it, Live it project (KCL) project is unique to Dove House Community Trust.  KCL supports low income families, specifically those on benefits and the working poor through a tailored 5-week program to meet their particular family needs.

The sessions cover: money maximisation, financial inclusion and avoiding food wastage.

There are also group sessions which look at Debt and Benefits advice and an opportunity to address the psychology of shopping and retail advertising with taste tests comparing supermarket own brand foods to big brand food items.

Participants in this programme will make better spending choices and maximise their income by managing their finances more efficiently.
