Money matters

People with learning difficulties are encouraged to enter the job market, but are not always given advice on managing their income and expenses. It's Your Money is a fine introduction. In 16 boldly printed and well-illustrated pages it raises many common anxieties and shows how they can be allayed. The mysteries of loans, overdrafts, current accounts and direct debits are given succinct explanation. Clear diagrams show how to interpret bank statements and cash machine displays. The booklet deserves a wide audience. Anyone who's not sure about how banks work will find bewilderment turn into reassurance. Free copies of It's Your Money may be ordered from the publications department at Employers' Forum on Disability on 020 7403 3020. Minicom 74030040
