Money came to life for young people in the corridors of Westminster this summer as MyBnk shared the results of a groundbreaking financial education report.
MPs and members of the House of Lords joined us and 56 pupils from Ashburnham Primary School to take party in several Money Twist sessions covering topics such as saving, risk and interest.
Politicians also signed a pledge to support compulsory financial education in primary schools.
The campaign is led by Kickstart Money, a group of the UK’s largest investment firms who also support the delivery of our primary school programme.
You can find a video and the results of the Money Advice Service funded and Substance authored impact report, here.
