Young People and Money Toolkit - A new practical and useful resource for those working with young people
Between 2004 and 2011, as part of the Financial Services Authority Financial Capability Strategy, "Young People and Money" was developed to help youth practitioners support vulnerable young people to be more able to manage their money. Those working on the original project have now come together to create a new online toolkit which is brimming with ideas and activities to deliver engaging and fun financial capability sessions to support young people to make more informed choices about their money, and become more in control of their finances.
This Toolkit has been written by Developing Youth Practice in partnership with Money Advice Service.

In 2017 we received funding from the Illegal Money Lending Team from their Proceeds of Crime Awards to update the tool kit to expand the Psychology of Young People and Money section to include information on Choice Theory and to add a chapter on Ilegal Money Lending and Loan Sharks.
Young People and Money - Training Workshops
We also provide training workshops for those working with young people to accompany the tool kit which will give you the confidence and skills to deliver engaging and fun financial capability activities with young people.

Young People and Money - Literature Review
As part of developing the toolkit and workshop we undertook a comprehensive international literature review on financial capability and young people to inform our key principles and methods.
