Your carer will give you some pocket money every week. The amount you get goes up every time you have a birthday.
If you are still in care in the July after your 16th birthday, and you don’t have a job, you will get a £25 allowance. You will be expected to take more responsibility for buying the things you need and you can use this money to buy them. You carer will still provide food and pay the household bills.
If you need some extra help to manage your money, you can arrange this through your pathway plan.
