Who we work with

MyBnk brings financial education to life across the education and social sector
in a variety of settings with many types of young people

Schools & Teachers

To ensure maximum impact, MyBnk works closely with teachers to ensure our programmes map into your curriculum and takes into account a wide range of learning abilities.

Workshops can be delivered to whole year groups where we have the ability to work with multiple classes and at various Key Stages. Our Education Officers are fully trained and tested and come to your school armed with the latest resources – mapped to the national curriculum.

Many of our programmes are free or funded and can be delivered either directly in-person, virtually via secure video link or as online courses.

The priority is for young people to get the financial education knowledge that works best for them. See our case studies and impact centre for more.

Vulnerable young people

MyBnk strives to work with the widest range of young people, including those that conventional education struggles to reach. We have forged partnerships with organisations to ensure we reach out to the most disadvantaged and young people in vulnerable circumstances.

Our experts do this through face-to-face financial education and Youth Participation. More than half of our work is in this area. We have reached thousands of young people in hundreds of youth organisations, councils and housing associations across the UK. Workshops help young people detoxify money management and overcome the barriers to independent living in areas like managing benefits, tax, prioritising spending, and debt.

We have extensive experience helping:

  • Care leavers.
  • Young Parents Groups.
  • Those in sheltered housing.
  • SEN, EAL and Esol students, including those with dyscalculia, dyspraxia or dyslexia.
  • NEETs, young offenders or those on probation.
  • Unaccompanied Asylum Seekers.

 

Housing Associations & Councils

MyBnk’s financial education programmes deal with debt prevention and intervention.

Most of our work with housing associations focuses on the latter, helping young tenants in, or who are at risk of getting in, rent arrears manage their money and keep their tenancies.

We have increasing experience working with young people before they get their tenancies as part of housing associations’ overall care, contract and commitment processes. This extends to young adults who are leaving authority care and who are in sheltered housing, using budgeting and saving skills to make sustainable transitions to independent living.

MyBnk have a dedicated programme, The Money House, that helps young people prepare for their first home. Contact avantika.taneja@mybnk.org for information on becoming a referral partner.
