Making Money Count offers everyday help with money, being online, finding work and renting. Broadland Housing helped to develop the new, easy-to-use website.
Part of the Building Better Opportunities programme, New Horizons was launched in October 2016 with funding from the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund. The project aims to tackle the root causes of poverty and help those most in need to gain employment.
New Horizons covers the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Local Enterprise Partnership area, including the most remote parts of the region.
Lou Marrs is Broadland Housing’s New Horizons Coach, based at our King’s Lynn office. (Watch this short video about Lou’s work.) Lou provides 1-to-1 coaching to help people improve their finance, employability and IT skills:
“I’ve worked with people over long periods of time. Often, they’ve overcome difficult life events and are able to move forward with their lives sometimes because of the challenges they have faced. As a New Horizons coach, I help individuals build confidence in their money and online skills, and take steps toward work.”
New Horizons is led by housing association CHS Group, in partnership with Axiom Housing, Broadland Housing, Cross Keys Homes, Centre 33, Norfolk Citizens Advice Bureaux, Papworth Trust and Rural Cambridgeshire Citizens Advice Bureau. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
