The Money House helps young people in, or about to move into, independent housing manage their money and maintain their tenancy. Participants gain practical, financial and digital skills to help them pay their rent on time, keep up with bills and budget their living costs. We explain how they can make informed choices about their future and teach them how to best manage their money, to prevent homelessness.
Sessions take place in a kitted out flat where our trainers teach real life skills for the real world. At The Money House there are no lectures or classroom environments. Interactive games and activities involve young people in every aspect of their learning. Our trainers are enthusiastic and empathetic, and it shows in the feedback we get from the young people who attend.
A virtual version is also available.
