Working Group on Financial Inclusion of the 2010 SIRG – Balancing Acts: All Together to Tackle Financial Exclusion!

September 14th 2010

Brussels

Being unable to pay one’s electricity and heating bills…
Being unable to pay back loans contracted…
Having to take a loan so your children can have Christmas
Not understanding what terms like interest rate mean…
Not being able to stick to your budget…
Being refused an affordable credit rating…
Being refused access to a basic bank account…

These are the realities of those who are financially excluded or face over-indebtedness— but what can individuals, community organisations, private business, and public sector at all level do to combat this form of exclusion: one that affects more than 30% of Europeans ?
Our event features interactive plays, presentations of best practice, and a though-provoking open session that will showcase local best practice and consider the best way forward. It is certain to inspire you into action.
Join us on the 27th May, as the 2010 Social Inclusion Regional Group marks in the European Focus week of the 2010 European Year for combating poverty and social exclusion by holding its thematic event on financial exclusion.
