Hyde Plus is proud to have started The Money House and to have developed and delivered it since 2012. In that time, we have trained almost 600 young people in financial resilience, helping them to understand their obligations and supporting them to maintain their tenancies and learn how to budget effectively. To see what we’ve achieved and how we did it, please see the Interactive Money House.
The five-day and one-day training courses have been incredibly successful, but it’s also clear, given the amount of interest we’ve received from all over the UK, that more could be achieved if the initiative was run by a charity with national reach.
We are delighted that youth enterprise and financial education charity MyBnk will be taking over delivery of The Money House in Greenwich, and expanding into Newham, from January 2017. As well as running the programme in these areas for at least the next two years, MyBnk will also provide flexible versions of the training to local authorities and landlords, adapted to their needs and budgets.
