Hyde Plus’s pioneering financial resilience project, The Money House, was awarded Excellence in Housing at the Guardian Public Services Awards, beating a record number of entries to lift the trophy.
Tom Gardiner, Hyde Plus special projects manager, was delighted and said: “I am so proud that the hard work of The Money House team has been recognised nationally for the benefits it brings to vulnerable young people.
Almost 600 young adults who have recently moved into their own flat – or are about to – have finished the training, which takes place in a real flat in Greenwich. Hyde’s four-year leadership of The Money House, comes to an end in December when the reins will be handed over to youth financial education charity MyBnk.
Tom continues: “Winning this award is an incredible high, and proves our belief in the importance of providing financial capability training to young people is as vital now as it was when we began this project in 2013.”
