Young people from an area of Bradford have been presented with certificates for completing a four-week community education and empowerment programme.

The group at Sandale Community Centre, Woodside, took part in West Yorkshire Trading Standard’s SMART LIFE programme.

The programme is aimed at improving the financial health and wellbeing of families in Bradford.

Interactive community workshops cover topics such as shopping on a budget, safe saving and borrowing, illegal money lenders, identifying common scams and frauds, and ID theft.
