Join with Purbeck Citizens Advice in funding a Youth Club Adviser to engage with young people aged 12 - 25 working in partnership with the Purbeck Youth & Community Foundation. Recent research shows that young people find it difficult to manage money and that these habits are formed young and difficult to shift in later life.
Together, we can help young people in Wareham develop financial management skills that will last a lifetime.
Just £10 will fund the youth location for a session
£30 will provide a practical budgeting exercise for a group of young people
£400 will fund a tablet computer for a hands-on training session
