Is it for me?
Do you want to do something more…
- for yourself?
- for your family?
- for your community?
If so, being part of a Self-Reliant Group can help you with this. Find out how joining a group brings friendship, purpose, skills and a laugh. And how you can use your ideas and savings to earn some money.
What is a Self-Reliant Group
A Self-Reliant Group (or SRG for short) is a peer-group: like-minded people who live in the same neighbourhood, have things in common, or who already meet at another club or support group.
Between five and ten people in a group all commit together to:
- meet weekly
- save together (for example £1 per member per week)
- make collective decisions and rotate leadership
- learn new skills which have the potential to lead to a business or community enterprise.
Self-Reliant Groups grow their own income. Some lend to each other, others share profits, some build businesses as a group or around one of their members. Others simply – and fundamentally – gain in confidence, friendship and financial power by saving and deciding what to spend their income on.
