What is MoneySense?

MoneySense is an impartial financial education programme for 5-18 year-olds. It uses engaging materials and real-life situations to make learning about money feel real and relevant. We provide MoneySense for free because we believe teaching young people about money is one of the best ways to equip them for adult life.

For young people

Games, videos and interactives for young people to explore independently – all designed to help them be more confident using money.

For teachers
