Do I get pocket money and do I have to work for it?

Yes, all young people in care are entitled to pocket money, how much you get will be dependant on your age. Whether you have to work for it will be dependant on the place you live however there’s lots of people who do chores for their pocket money. Getting pocket money might be the outcome of you helping around the house or keeping your own room clean and tidy but remember it’s nice to help out generally and makes you feel good when you’ve done something that benefits not only you but others too. At times your pocket money might be restricted if you’re spending it on things that are making you unsafe or you could be paying back breakages in the house but this is about people looking out for your safety and you being responsible for your actions. However these restrictions should be fair and your views on the issue should be taken into account.
