The Money House

Rural Action Derbyshire is now able to offer this course FREE for every young person fitting the referral criteria, including travel expenses.  

The Money House is open to anyone in Derbyshire aged 17-24 preparing to move from residential/foster care or from supported accommodation to fully independent living within the next 3 months or who have recently secured their first tenancy. 

The project aims to increase financial confidence by taking part in a range of fun, interactive tasks that replicate some of the financial choices and decisions needed to maintain a tenancy and remain debt free. Learning happens through a process of practical activity, discussion, reiteration and repetition.

The non-residential programme takes place over 4 days in a real life flat in Chesterfield and covers the basics of budgeting, bills, banking, borrowing, benefits and bureaucracy through informal learning, interactive games and discussions. Learners can also achieve two AQA Awards at Entry Level.
