Coronavirus Update

Helping teachers, youth workers and families navigate the new normal
with financial education for children and young adults

Our Work

The delivery of financial education to young people is our core mission. MyBnk has accelerated the introduction of digital alternatives and complements to our proven, expert-led face-to-face programmes.

Young people in the UK are disproportionately impacted by the coronavirus with education stalled and, those new to or entering the job market, facing sharply diminished opportunities. Increasing numbers of young adults are losing their jobs and many children live in households’ where an already fragile monetary situation will be impacted, despite state support.

Circumstance and information is changing and financial education has a vital role to play in supporting young adults now and enabling families and educators to make sure young people make the most of the money they have.

Service Update: 28.05.20

MyBnk, like many charities, is responding to the continuing development of the Coronavirus by following state issued advice and recommendations by related bodies. Our staff are on hand to respond to any questions.
