Money Management

When you're working with a Youth Coach, your payments may be subject to money management

Your Youth Coach will set up your payments so your accommodation costs, bills and debts will be paid. Any remaining money will be split between an in-hand allowance and your payment card.

What is it?

Money management means your provider will help you manage your payments so that all your important costs are paid. This means:

  • your rent or board and things like your power bill and any debts will be paid straight from your payment. You won't get this money yourself.
  • you will get paid a weekly allowance of up to $50 into your personal bank account.
  • any money left over will be put onto your personal payment card. This is like a debit card that you can use to buy your food and groceries at approved stores.
