A budget is a plan for how you spend your money. Your budget can include all your money such as your funding, pay you get from working, or money you get from other places. You can make your budget for each week, each month, or for the year. You should review your budget often to make sure you are not spending more money than you have.
You might need help making your budget. Here are some people who could help:
- Parent or other family member
- Legal Guardian
- A support worker
- Your Public Guardian Trustee
