Supporting the development of children's money management skills
With over 19 years’ experience, Young Money supports over 5,000 educators every year to develop the financial capability of the young people they work with. We are a trusted and valued provider of knowledge, resources and training to anyone teaching children and young people how to manage money, alongside influencing policy.
At Young Money, we recognise that parents and teachers are key influencers in a child’s development. That’s why we have developed Money Heroes, focused on teachers and parents collaboratively supporting children aged 3 -11 years to develop their financial capability skills, at school and at home. This has been made possible thanks to financial support from HSBC UK.
We believe every child should have the opportunity to develop their money management skills for later life, and starting early is essential. Money Heroes helps those with the most influence in a child’s development create the heroes of tomorrow.
Why we started Money Heroes
Research shows that, on average, children begin to develop their financial habits by the age of seven.
Financial education is critical in the development of children's knowledge, skills and attitudes to money. The two most accessible ways of reaching children are through the education system and through their parents. A collaborative, child-centred approach will create a positive impact on children’s financial education as it ensures financial capability skills are continuously developed inside and outside of the classroom.
The support that HSBC UK has given to Money Heroes will enable us to reach more young people than ever before, providing meaningful financial education and giving extra support to the most disadvantaged communities across the UK.
