Preparing young
people to thrive

Vulnerable young people who do not have support networks are being forced to grow up too quickly.

Financial education and practical help is needed to prepare young people to live independently, and prevent homelessness and debt.

Our work addresses the barriers that prevent young people from fulfilling their potential and promotes early action to support their move into adulthood.

We have already helped young people create their own change:

Now we are calling for a greater focus on the financial capability of the most vulnerable young people.

What are the consequences of not having good financial skills and getting into debt when you have little support?

Our report Paying the price, raises concerns about young people who haven't learnt about money in the usual way, through school or home, because they aren’t positive places for them.

Join us to campaign for better financial education for the most vulnerable young people.
