Media Comment: Young Enterprise My Money week

Monday 13th June 2016

Kirsty Bowman-Vaughan, Young People Expert for the Money Advice Service comments:

“We are really pleased that 84% of children realise it is important to save for the future. We now need to make sure they are given the right skills and knowledge to help them both save and spend in a way that will help them build good financial habits as they move into adult life. We know that children form their money habits before the age of seven so financial education and giving them practical experiences of handling money from a young age is really important. Initiatives like My Money Week are a great way to bring money management to life and to encourage young people to set money goals and gain good money habits for the future.”
