Children and young people encounter money earlier and earlier. That’s why it’s really important for young people to have the knowledge, skills and confidence to manage their finances well.

The Family Building Society has produced this range of age appropriate resources in collaboration with Young Money, a charity that provides inspiring resources for teaching young people money management skills.

These printable guides with useful explanations and terminology will help your students learn about managing money and personal finance, the concept of bank and savings accounts, value for money plus the complex topics of credit, budgeting and foreign currency. 


The following guides are available:

Age 5-7: ‘What is money?’ and ‘How should I look after my money?


Age 7-11: ‘Budgeting basics’ and ‘Getting the savings habit’


Age 11-14: ‘Savvy Shopper’ and ‘Foreign Currency’
