Combining financial literacy with good CSR

Originally funded by Nationwide, Education  Business Partnership’s Financial Awareness programme has been developed for students in Year 10 upwards and is aimed to increase student’s financial awareness and understanding.

Business volunteers from a financial background and who help people manage their money daily, volunteered to help the students and support delivery of the workshops.

 

“A great way to get young people thinking about finances early and plan accordingly” Business Volunteer

To date they have successfully delivered our Financial Awareness programme to over 9,500 young people. These impactful workshops are designed to help young people understand the cost of living, salary expectations for different career paths and how to budget income to afford certain lifestyles.

100% of business volunteers said they felt they had made a real difference to young people.
