What is Financial Awareness?
It’s never too early to learn the value of money, how much things cost, how to plan and budget, salary expectations for different career paths and how much you need to earn to fund your preferred lifestyle. Our Financial Awareness programme has been developed for students in Year 10 upwards and is aimed to increase student’s financial awareness and understanding.
The workshop engages students and helps them realise that choices made now can make a real difference to their standard of living in adult life.
To date we have successfully delivered our Financial Awareness programme to over 9,500 young people. These impactful workshops are delivered with the support of business volunteers who help people manage their money.
£500 sponsorship enables this successful programme to be delivered to 100 students
71% of students increased their knowledge about the wide range of true living costs by over 50%
100% of business volunteers said they felt they had made a real difference to young people
