Money for Life – Helping UK Communities with Money Management
making Britain financially capable – a sustainable, public and private sector partnership
“Money for Life” is a personal money skills programme, targeted at adult learners in UK communities. We are providing Teach Me and Teach Others, two accredited, financial education qualifications – to give teachers and community workers the skills they need to talk confidently to their learners about money management, and to support them to make the right decisions.
We are also empowering young people to develop innovative, grass-roots money management solutions through the Money for Life Challenge. This national competition provides grants for 16-24 year olds to run a money management project to improve financial literacy in their communities.
