Doorway offer young people opportunities to learn and gain skills in money management.

We run Money Matters workshops which can be delivered one to one or in a group setting. This programme enables young people to budget, pay bills and save money as well as helping young people to develop their independent living skills. The programme also gives young people the confidence to manage their finances and make positive life choices in regards to money management. 

Money Matters facilitates the young people to investigate costs of independent living. This is done by calculating weekly, fortnightly or monthly income and expenditure. Looking at the main costs such as food, utilities, transport etc. It is then identified how their own lifestyle could be adapted to reduce costs, plan for unforeseen circumstances and possibility of saving.
