Young carers and financial responsibility

Our Include Service is funded by the Money Advice Service to give young carers the skills they need to manage their own budgets and finances and understand their entitlements to benefits and financial support.

What the service will provide for young people

We are developing and evaluating a peer model of delivering financial capability training for young carers. We are offering a 'train the trainer' model to support young carers, across the South of England, to receive financial capability training and support the development of tools for all young carers and their families.

Young carers and the impacts of financial responsibility - guidance for professionals.

Who is this service available to?

Money Matters will provide 80 young carers (aged 11-24) from across the South of England the opportunity to become ‘young trainers’ in financial capability. They will have the opportunity to gain accreditation for their improved skills and knowledge through the Open Badge Academy.

‘Young Trainers’ will then deliver training sessions to groups of young carers in their local areas, using the skills gained and sharing their knowledge.

How to get involved - information for young people.

How to access this service

Young  carers services from across the South of England have been asked to invite and support young carers in their areas to engage in this programme as trainers and provide other young carers in their area the opportunity to access the peer-led training that will be delivered.
