Giving you an exemption on paying council tax, if you live in Bracknell up to the age of 21.
Providing or telling you about relevant money management courses.
Giving you information on how to access your Junior ISA or Child Trust Fund.
Supporting you to open a bank account.
Providing exceptional financial support in emergencies.
Your personal advisor will support you to apply for a National Insurance number, if you do not already have one.
Providing a financial gift at birthdays (18 and 21) and Christmas or other celebrations.
We will support you to buy essential items for your first job, such as a uniform or protective footwear.
We will support you with financial support for holiday accommodation if you are at university.
