Financial Capability

Our dedicated Financial Capability team (FINCAP) aims to reduce poverty and hardship by improving people’s financial skills – especially among more vulnerable members of the community.


It is widely recognised that financial problems often stem from poor money management and financial decision making, so FINCAP gets to the root cause of the problem.


CA Cornwall leads the FINCAP project for both Devon and Cornwall, and works with partner organisations, such as other financial charities, local authorities and banks, to share information and good practice supporting local people with problems and frontline workers helping them.

As well as organising forums in Truro and Plymouth, FINCAP is running a pilot programme providing financial education to students at Launceston and Callington colleges.


In 2020, we started a new project in North Cornwall, targeting the most vulnerable groups in society who have some of the worst social and financial life outcomes.
