Financial Inclusion Project

In 2009 Community Voluntary Partners was commissioned to research the Financial Inclusion needs of Bolsover district residents and draw up a strategic plan for meeting those needs.

The Financial Inclusion Project officially began in April 2010 with the aim of:

  • improving access to debt & benefit advice
  • improving access to affordable credit
  • improving access to mainstream financial services
  • increasing local people’s personal financial management skills


Project delivery was led by four local organisations:

  • Community Voluntary Partners
  • Derbyshire Unemployed Workers Centre
  • North East Derbyshire CAB
  • 2 Shires Credit Union


This project officially ended on March 31st 2012. However, the Financial Inclusion Partnership has now been absorbed into the Fighting Poverty forum.
