MyBnk - Virtual Money House

A live online accredited financial literacy programme aimed at preventing youth homelessness – Taking referrals on a continuous basis for 16-25 year olds in or receiving help from the Royal London Borough of Greenwich, Newham, Lewisham, Tower Hamlets, Westminster or Haringey.

Young people living on their own, or about to, often need money management skills to help stay independent.

With us there are no lectures, no jargon, no judgements – just straight up, fun and easy-to-understand money tips and talk. This helps them become more confident about living on their own.

Our trainers are trained, tested, enthusiastic and near-peer, and it shows in the feedback we get from attendees – many of whom say: “I thought this was going to be boring”.

These secure expert-led sessions take place on Zoom. Young people require a PC, laptop or smartphone with a working microphone, speaker, webcam and stable internet connection and a quiet environment. To substitute lunch provision, participants get a supermarket voucher at the end of the week.
