Our expert-led programmes aim to give young adults in vulnerable circumstances 'survival' money skills and knowledge that they can implement immediately in their transition into independent living.
These financial education workshops focus on debt prioritisation, money management and digital finance skills. Delivered through councils, charities and non-mainstream education institutions, we help those often not in employment, education or training or leaving care, detoxify their relationship with money.
We also provide a range of programmes for school ages and several home learning products.
The Money House

A virtual version is also available. Based in Greenwich, Newham, Westminster and Haringey. Independently evaluated by the Money Advice Service’s ‘What Works Fund’.
