Offering support to tenants of Wolverhampton to become

More Financially Confident

ABOUT BOW.

Our 5 year project is ending on the 31st of December 2017.
The Better off in Wolverhampton (BoW) project was put in place to increase your knowledge and confidence with managing money, helping you to maintain your tenancy. We hope that in your time with us we have provided you with the information and support that has helped you increase your income and reduce your expenditure. BoW, funded by Big Lottery, was only ever a five year project though, and that funding is now coming to an end; the project will finish at Christmas 2017.

  • Over our 5 year project we’ve managed to help over 1300 people.
  • We’ve had over 200 volunteers, thank you to everybody!
  • Over 65 of our volunteers completed an ASDAN course in financial capability.

OUR STORIES.

Just a small sample of how we’ve helped people.
Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean.
