Learn about money


Financial Advocate Maddy working with person at workshop

We want to enable more people with a learning disability and their families and supporters to be independent and in control of their money. We do research, projects and development work to help more people learn about money. This section of the website tells you more about some of these projects and gives you lots of free information and resources to help you manage your money.

You can learn about access to banking for people with a learning disability. We have written a report and guide which tell you about some of the main problems people face and how you can get support with banking yourself.

We wrote a series of factsheets for family carers who are managing a relative’s money. They include information on benefits, appointeeship and planning for the future. We answer questions like ‘where does the money come from?’ and ‘how much can I have in savings?’.
