This Hub is all about learning, sharing, and talking about Solutions to The Cost of Living Crisis that has adversely affected Black communities more in the UK and globally. This is where we talk candidly about finances, money management, debt, building resilience, investments, and Mental health, during tough times. And the current cost of living crisis definitely falls under this category of seasons.

These subjects are traditionally taboo in black communities. People find it uncomfortable talking about financial management, debt, and generally mental health is considered a huge no-go zone. Most black households are used to focusing mainly on the 4 essentials: housing, food, fuel/warmth, and financial security, we at WODIN add Digital access to that list following the current economic climate that has lingered on from COVID-19 and the global lockdowns.

Many black people are on the lowest incomes and have struggled for years to cover their needs let alone bills. Yet, things have gotten worse post covid and the energy crisis. So do we focus on the problem? No, because what one focuses on expands. So we at WODIN encourage our communities and beneficiaries to focus on the Solutions, on a positive mindset, and on supporting each other to BE the change we desire to see.

This organization has helped me and many other people change lives. I can now use technical gadgets to communicate and also use the provided education to empower others.
