About Us

What We Do

We are a grassroots organisation made up of volunteers seeking to make a positive impact on our communities. We are finance professionals and educators that have come together to collaborate with schools to teach children the basics in financial literacy including savings, budgeting, borrowing and investing.

Most of us are also parents and we are all passionate about the importance of teaching young people financial literacy life skills and providing them with the grounding necessary to make educated decisions. We produce top quality educational materials which are available free of charge.

Our primary school materials revolve around our Year 6 Financial Literacy curriculum, which will be delivered to every primary school in the UK. Our financial literacy materials for secondary schools focus on enterprise and investing and include investment competitions, with work experience for the winning teams.

We appreciate your interest in our work and value your support.
