YIACS and financial capability - building the evidence base

We are pleased to announce the launch of our ‘YIACS and Money Matters’ project, which is aimed at gaining robust evidence of the effectiveness of the YIACS model in improving young adults’ financial capability.

The project will enable us to develop our understanding of the relationship between mental wellbeing and financial capability in young people and of the effectiveness of integrated young person-centred models of support in this context.

We are delighted to be working with nine YIACS on the project:

  • Croydon Drop-In
  • It’s Your Choice, Totton
  • MAP, Norwich
  • No Limits, Southampton
  • Service Six, Wellingborough
  • Young Persons Advisory Service, Liverpool
  • Young People Cornwall
  • Youth Advice Centre, Brighton
  • The Zone, Plymouth

The project is funded by the Money Advice Service’s ‘What Works Fund’ as part of an attempt to build a more solid evidence base for future funding of financial capability initiatives and will run until May 2018.
