Young people to explore finance and credit

Young people who experience greater poverty and inequality are the focus of a new project, delivered by Young Scot and Carnegie UK Trust that will explore young people’s understanding and use of credit, and financial products and services.

Repay Right will seek to understand what young people who face greater barriers, see as key financial products in their lives.

Young people will have a key role in how the Repay Right is shaped and delivered. They will have the chance to share their experiences of financial credit, including loans, credit and store cards, contracts and any other financial products and services they use in their lives. This project also allows the young people to collaborate with representatives from a range of financial institutions to create ideas, solutions and prototypes that will be helpful to a young person’s financial needs.

Young Scot is currently searching for young people between the ages of 16-24 to be a part of Repay Right, which will run from August 2017 – December 2017.
