The Share is a registered charity which operates two major schemes on behalf of the Department of Education, in order to improve the life skills and financial resources of Looked-After children throughout the United Kingdom: the Junior ISA and Child Trust Fund schemes. These arrangements have thus far benefitted over 100,000 children and young people in care

Child Trust Funds (CTF) were put in place for all children born between 1 September 2002 and 2 January 2011. However although six million were set up, approximately one millian are 'addressee gone away' - that is, lost to the young person to whom they belong. Unfortunately childen from the poorest homes are worst affected by this 'addressee gone away' rate, with those in families in receipt of Child Tax Credit suffering a 33% ' lost' rate. With the oldest CTF recipient reaching 16 years of age this September, we are determined to re-link as many young people as possible to their accounts.
