An application from the Preston Faith Forum said: “There is general recognition that government cutbacks are having a huge impact on people’s ability to cope with day-to-day living, and managing finance is a crucial aspect of this.
“These two events during Inter Faith week being together people from different faith groups, together with members of the local authority and public sector, in a forum where issues can be identified and solutions and approaches explored.”
The money is to be used to pay for guest speakers and refreshments at the events.
