Young people need your support...

Most of us learn about money at home or at school. Some of the most vulnerable young people have not had that support. They tell us that they feel unable to access the advice, support and services they most need during major life changes – leaving care, setting up a home, having children. As a result, many get into debt, increasing the difficulty of keeping a home, finding a job or completing training.

There are no quick and easy answers to the challenges they face. One thing is clear – they need a government champion. Someone who will unify ministers, banks, employment advisers, regulators, social workers and others to support and advise young people on managing money.
