Understanding Financial Capability

People can become homeless for many different reasons. In some cases, these reasons can be financial. If someone loses their job, they won’t be able to pay their rent or mortgage. Some households may need help to learn the skills to manage budgets and debt.

This post-primary theme provides lessons and activities to support you in teaching your pupils about managing budgets and understanding how money works. This can lead to Financial Capability.

This resource aims to give your pupils:

  • an understanding of how financial issues can lead to homelessness; and
  • a better understanding of managing budgets and financial planning.
