bMoneywize provides an innovative educational solution to teaching young people Financial literacy skills in an increasingly “Cashless Society.”
bMoneywize (the personal finance toolkit) has been gaining increasing attention as a fresh solution to the problem of teaching children money and maths skills, while engaging parents in the learning. It is hailed by the ITV as a solution to the problems caused by the cashless society, because children still need to understand the impact of spending when using electronic payments.
The BBC also took an interest in bMoneywize as heard in this broadcast: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09jqbqw

bMoneywize cuts across all ages and is enjoyed by children and adults and encourages family learning and bonding, helping parents to talk about money in a fun way. It has been played in schools, community centres, business buildings and at home!
As suggested by the UK government’s flagship organisation for financial education, the Money Advice Service, bMoneywize presents four steps to save money. It provides opportunities for children to learn about setting savings goals, thinking of creative ways to make money, make savings a habit and track their progress.
