Location

Situation

UK personal debt is at a record £1.4 trillion, around £9,000 per person; this is hardly surprising given that 90% of the UK population have never received any form of money management lessons. Young people are not being taught the money skills needed in life, leaving them financially excluded and in debt. Half of 17 year olds are or have been in debt, and over a quarter of the UK population have no savings at all.

Solution

MyBnk will deliver its award-winning Money Twist programme, covering practical and everyday financial matters. By creating a financially literate generation who are able to budget, break down jargon and assess risk, we will empower young people to take control of their finances, therefore reducing the risk of young people falling into the trap of unsustainable debt and a life of poverty.
