Fair Deal: Ready to Work?

Integrating financial skills and advice with employment support

It has never been more important for young people to be confident with money. Our latest report, Ready to Work, makes the case that money skills are a vital way to increase young people’s chances of finding and keeping a job.

Vulnerable young people tend to reach major life milestones – like leaving home or getting a job – earlier than their peers. Many do not have the luxury of a dependable network to support them if things go wrong.

The Government has told young people they need to ‘earn or learn’. Financial capability is vital to young people succeeding at both.

We are asking the Government to integrate effective financial skills, advice and support into employment programmes, helping young people make the most of training and job opportunities. Join our campaign today.
