Engage Daily Update - 19 March
RACA (Renfrewshire Affordable Credit Alliance) helps local people access fair and affordable forms of credit. We anticipate that many individuals and families may have to borrow money in 2021 in order to make ends meet. Unemployment plus the end of furlough, credit holidays or mortgage/rent breaks are all likely to result in increased borrowing. RACA members are working hard to provide alternatives to harmful, high-cost credit such as loan sharks or payday lenders.
Our next event is Tuesday 11 May 10am-11.30am, with presentations, a film preview(!), and networking opportunities. Save the date and watch this space for registration information.
