Funding for a new financial education programme for families

We are delighted to announce a new partnership with the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families to design a targeted financial education programme for children with special educational needs and/or mental health conditions.

This new partnership comes as part of a new £1.1 million grant programme funded by The Money and Pensions Service, which tests scaling up projects that deliver financial education training to teachers and practitioners or offer direct delivery of financial education to children and young people in vulnerable circumstances.

We will train 800 practitioners and develop an online, multi-media toolkit tailored to support children with specific learning needs.

We are also building an online map of family financial education providers to support access to local services across the UK. To help us shape this exciting new financial education programme we’re working with practitioners to run virtual focus groups. We’d like to hear from health care, early years, family hub, 3rd sector and teaching professionals working with children aged 7 and under who have special educational needs (SEN) and/ or need mental health support.

Take part in the consultation.
