Community Work - The Money Charity

 

Delivering financial education through interactive workshop in schools across the UK.

 

The Money Charity

A long-term partner of the Active Community Programme, The Money Charity delivers financial education through interactive workshop in schools across the UK.  Each workshop empowers children to build the skills, knowledge, attitudes and behaviours to make the most of their money. 

 

Through their volunteer programme The Money Charity trains and matches employees with local schools to deliver ‘The Volunteer Money Workshop’.  Aimed at 11-16 year old secondary school pupils in the local area the workshop covers key financial topics in line with the National Curriculum, including budgeting, the importance of savings, and understanding credit.

 

The programme also offers a good professional development package for our employees as it provides them with the opportunity to develop leadership, mentoring and communication skills.  In 2015 our employees delivered 25 workshops in schools across Kent to an audience of more than 600 students.
