If you’re under 25 this section is for you!
GEMAP are working with under 25’s across Glasgow to find out what matters to you when it comes to managing money. We want to know what we can do to make our service better for you.
We know that young people might not access support from money advice services, we’d like to change this.

Future Savers - Glasgow’s Starter for 10
JOIN AND SEE YOUR MONEY GROW!
GEMAP has been supporting the Future Savers Project introduced by Glasgow City Council (GCC). Last year we visited Glasgow Secondary Schools to promote Credit Unions to young people to encourage them to start saving. Each pupil that joined received £10 from GCC deposited into their savings account from GCC to kick start their saving journey. If you are moving on to first year in a Glasgow secondary school make sure you don't miss out on the chance to become a Future Saver!
