These days, Money Matters More... and more!

We want to engage parents and children to understand how money works so they can control everyday living expenses and gain confidence in financial matters.

We will educate and inspire parents to use newly developed digital resources with their children covering three age groups:

  • 6-12 years - comics for reading and discussion together
  • 13-18 years - fun digital escape rooms to play and learn about money issues
  • 18-25 years - more advanced budgeting tools and apps.

Our vision is that families will develop their existing knowledge and skills to cope with managing their money in difficult financial times, building resilience to face the rising cost of living.

Making the funding work: the funds raised will cover four six-week community courses including childcare and online options.  These courses will bring parents together to discuss money issues and show them how to use our innovative digital resources to support their children's learning about money and how finance works.

We aim to train at least 60 parents, benefitting 120 + children and to continue to work with families to develop new ideas.  The digital resources will be freely available and we will publicise them with the aim of attracting 500 + more parents and trainers to make use of them.
