26 Jun 2019
Strategic Solutions are delighted to announce that we have signed up as a new sponsor for Dorset skills for life charity SafeWise.
The partnership will see our expert advisers help develop financial planning and management content for SafeWise’s new skills for life programmes.
SafeWise Chief Executive Rob Hattersley said: “I would like to thank Strategic Solutions Financial Services for their sponsorship, we’re delighted to welcome them as a key SafeWise partner.
“SSFS’ financial contribution will help us continue to deliver essential skills for life education, and their financial expertise will help us develop existing and new programmes at SafeWise centres in Bournemouth and Weymouth.”
SafeWise already delivers Junior Citizen primary programmes to schools plus family, youth and group tours; but is now developing Age Well and Home Leavers programmes which will include significant money management scenarios.
SSFS has long been committed to supporting its local community and has recently set up a staff-run community fund which is financed not only by the company but employees too.
Founding Partner Kevin Forbes said: “Local people have trusted and supported SSFS as we have grown and become successful over the last nine years. We really appreciate that support and are committed to giving something back to help our local community.
“The new partnership with SafeWise is a perfect match. Our role as trusted financial advisers is to help clients make the right decisions for them about managing their money; and that fits perfectly with SafeWise’s ethos of educating visitors to make informed choices about managing risk and other situations in life.
