Cashpoint Money Matters

Cashpoint Money Matters

By: IMPACT Pathways
Added: 21 October 2013

Cashpoint is a new service for young people living in social housing.

A team of Cashpoint Workers offer one-to-one and group sessions on a wide range of topics relating to finances and managing money.

It's a well known fact that young people in social and supported housing are the most likely people to struggle with their money.

Firstly - they generally don't have a lot of it so making ends meet is hard.

Secondly a lot young people have never had any advice or training about how to budget or where to go for help.

Cashpoint is open to all young people aged 16-25 in social housing in Bristol and the surrounding area.

We work with a variety of other young people focused organisations who have experience of delivering money advice.

We also know that most young people would prefer to talk to another young person about their money issues so we'll be training some young people as Money Mentors. They will be young people who have lived in social housing or still are. People who have lived off low incomes with real stories and advice.
