Drop the F Bomb on Money

@ VOL 20 ON MAY 15, 2019

When Charlotte Steggall talks to young people about the schools programme Take Your Place, helping young people with little or no experience of university explore the world of higher education, the topic that always comes up is money. The barriers that stop people talking about money, the stigmas and judgements, are things that Charlotte is helping to get rid of. Encouraging young people to be open about money helps them to be more confident about making financial decisions and explore their options.
