Young Enterprise responds in support of MAS (Money Advice Service) Financial Capability Strategy
Young Enterprise welcomes the Money Advice Service’s Financial Capability Strategy which was released today, which aims to improve people’s ability to manage money well, prepare for and cope with life events and handle financial challenges. The initiative is a positive step toward equipping the next generation to be financially literate and recognises the growing problem of poor money management in the UK.
