The History of My Money Now
The My Money Now project was funded by the Money Advice Service as part of their What Works Fund scheme. The project delivered financial capability training to 591 young people aged 16-21 nationwide between March 2017 and March 2018 and was tailored to young people facing a big life transition such as beginning work or moving away from home.
The training was part of a research project comparing whether peer or adult education is more effective when it comes to financial training. The research showed that on all dimensions of assessment peer educators were scored more highly. See our findings in more detail below:
My Money Now is now being offered as a paid training package aimed at young employees/ apprentices. Please see below for more details.
