BBC Children in Need – Helping Children Learn to be Money Smart
- Posted on Aug 7, 2020
BBC Children in Need have been investigating, in partnership with HSBC, the relationship children and young people have with money, and want to help improve their understanding of looking after their finances. Whether it’s pretend money, pocket money or wages from a first job, it is so important for children to understand where money comes from and how to look after it.
Each exercise is aimed at a different age group and is based around an instructional video that helps to show how everyone can be money smart.
