Financial Capability

We know that for everyone, as well as young people,
stability with money is critical to accessing
other opportunities in our lives and to having a safe and secure home.

If you are a young person, we can help you to develop your money management skills and confidence, open a bank account, increase your budgeting skills or deal with rent arrears or debts. We can also support you to learn where to go for other money related help when you need it.

I found it really difficult to understand Universal Credit, and the whole thing really stressful. Through the Ask Us project I have done things I would have never been able to do on my own. They have consistently fought my corner and I am very grateful.
1625 has given me an extra nudge to help myself and be better. Emma is amazing and has helped me so much like getting my benefits sorted and helping me understand bills and setting up direct debits. I was starting to get into debt before but Emma has really helped me with sorting everything. Please say thank you to Emma and give her recognition!
