Why have we created this content for you?

It is very important that you learn about what money is and how to manage it – and this understanding should happen sooner rather than later.

Financial skills are as important as any other skills that you will learn – but they are rarely taught.

Whether at school or at home, it seems surprising that so many people enter their adulthood without really understanding about money, saving, investing or any of the other aspects of finance.

You don’t need to be an expert, but basic knowledge is essential to managing your financial situation and future, however unimportant money may seem at the moment.

So we have been inspired to create a website and set of resources to give you a grounding in this subject. We want to do our bit to try to help make you well-prepared to face up to responsibilities and challenges you might face.
