Money Mentoring Ltd

Money Mentoring Ltd has been founded with personalised self-directed support in mind and has adopted a not-for-profit social enterprise model as a way of delivering services to vulnerable adults. Money Mentoring Ltd is an innovate organisation that enables individuals to retain their independence and dignity, and the delivery of services via home visits ensures that even the most vulnerable adults can access support for as long as it is needed.

Money Mentors provide daily money management support within a confidential face-to-face relationship based on regular on-going home visits that helps vulnerable adults to learn to become more organised and in control of their own money matters.

We provide support to vulnerable adults with capacity to make financial decisions but who are struggling to manage their day-to-day money matters. The level of service provided is dependent on decision-making capacity and tailored to individual needs.

Our services may benefit those with a learning difficulty, physical disability or mental illness. It may be someone who is unwell, confused, isolated, frail, has memory problems or difficulties communicating, or need support following an illness, house move or bereavement or there are mental health issues.
