Instilling basic budgeting, saving and money appreciation skills at school can quite literally pay dividends in adult life, helping young people live the financial life they aspire to.This special event, run by TISA’s Children’s Savings Policy Council, will be a showcase for insights, ideas, innovations and resources aimed at equipping children and young adults with the attitude, skills and means to enable them to achieve their personal and financial goals. I am delighted to invite you to attend and do hope that you can join us.
The afternoon will feature representatives from a range of organisations and initiatives who share our passion for financial education and who already provide active solutions*. The format will be a drop-in basis, enabling you to call in at a time that suits you and stay for as long as you want.
Invitations are being sent to those with an interest in improving financial education for children, young adults and the family unit. We believe this will be a fantastic opportunity for you to meet with like-minded people from organisations, charities and firms, all keen to share ideas and learn.
Our hope is that everyone will leave the showcase better informed and inspired!
TISA and Children’s Savings
TISA is a unique, consumer focused membership organisation. Our aim is to improve the financial wellbeing of consumers by aligning the interests of people, the financial services industry and the UK economy. TISA’s growing membership currently numbers 190 firms representing all sectors of the UK financial services industry.
Children’s Savings is a key strategic policy and technical focus for TISA. Our Policy Council comprises senior representatives from TISA member firms and together with our technical team is striving to extend and improve financial education for children and their parents; develop ideas aimed at improving and extending saving for children; provide input to HM Treasury on Junior ISAs and Child Trust Funds and work with government to explore opportunities for central funding either for universal or targeted sectors.
In 2017 TISA was proud to initiate KickStart Money – a £1m industry funded project delivering financial education to 18,000 children aged 7 to 11 over a three-year period. The project received an £80,000 award from the MAS ‘What works fund’ to allow for an independent assessment of the effectiveness of the programme. The aim is to make a compelling case for the inclusion of financial education within the primary school curriculum.
