9.17 Pocket Money

This chapter was added to the manual in June 2013.


  1. Each child/young person is to have a separate page to record their  pocket money transactions on in the C/YP’s Pocket Money folder which is kept in the safe;
  2. On each stay, any money brought in is to be recorded under the transaction ‘Cash to c/acc’ and the amount recorded under the heading ‘Deposit’;
  3. The total balance in cash is also to be recorded at each transaction;
  4. Every time a transaction is made, there must be two signatures. Wherever possible, children/young people should be encouraged to sign for their own transactions;
  5. At the end of each stay, any of the child/young person’s money not spent, must be withdrawn from their account and returned home;
  6. This must also be recorded under the transaction ‘withdrawn - home’.
