Finances and Benefits

Growing up means having more control over your life and your choices, but also means more responsibility.  Part of that responsibility involves learning how to manage your money and finances.

This involves learning skills like budgeting (how much money you earn and spend) and staying out of debt (how much money you might owe).  It is also about learning how to keep your money safe. Use the information in the links below to support you to learn all about money.  

From the aged of 16 you may be entitled to some support via benefits in certain circumstances. Use the links below to find out more.
