    locations types included in the pilots
  • Family and children centres
  • Credit unions
  • Housing offices
  • Community centres
  • Prisons
  • Questionnaire
  • Aim Assess the suitability of a number of
    different outreach location types for the
    delivery of money advice to hard-to-reach and
    disadvantaged groups

Results First Phase Evaluation
  • Reaching deprived and financially excluded
    areas or groups
  • 75 interviewees lived in the top 20 per cent of
    the most deprived areas in England
  • High proportion of people with demographics
    indicative of social exclusion
  • Unemployment
  • Social housing
  • Lone parenthood
  • Illness and disability
  • Income below 10,000
  • Financial exclusion
  • 73 of prison interviewees
  • 51 of credit union interviewees

Results First Phase Evaluation
  • Reaching people who do not seek mainstream advice
    Hard-to-reach interviewees?
  • Had not received advice when in real financial
  • 31 of non-prison interviewees
  • 90 of prison interviewees
  • Of non-prison interviewees who did seek advice,
    nearly one third did not go to an independent
    money adviser but to creditors, family and
  • Would not seek professional advice if serious
    money problems in the future
  • 16 of non-prison interviewees
  • 22 among financially excluded
  • Despite living close to mainstream advice
    services, many interviewees were unaware of this
  • Higher percentages among financially excluded

Benefits of Outreach Advice from the Perspective
of Target Groups
  • Because its a professional establishment,
    people would know what they are talking about and
    people would trust the advice they gave.
  • Interviewee in a housing office
  • Because it is a community centre, and all kinds
    of people are coming in, it would be better to
    walk in here than walk into a debt advice centre.
    You would not stand out as much.
  • Interviewee in a community centre
  • People like myself have no money to shell out
    for transport.
  • Interviewee in a children and family centre
  • The location is central. It is easy to find.
    They have done good market research.
  • Interviewee in a credit union
  • It would take a burden off people here. And be a
    chance for people to say I can sort things out.
    A chance to speak to independent people to help
    sort out their problems, not the officers.
  • Interviewee in a prison

  • Multiple advice services in one location
  • People trust locations they are familiar with
  • -gt Importance of high quality advice
  • Importance of closing knowledge gaps on the
    availability of mainstream advice public
    legal education financial capability

    of its target groups and nature of outreach
  • Importance of partnership working

    community and bodies that deliver public
