Research shows that young people should start to learn about managing money as young as possible. That's why NatWest has appointed MOG as Junior Consultant to the Bank on issues relating to young peoples finances.
NatWest MoneySense uses real-life money moments – like getting pocket money, buying a mobile phone or saving for a first car – to make learning about money feel relevant and fun.
MoneySense resources are free to use for teachers and parents, and has games, videos and interactive activities for young people to explore independently, all designed to help them be more confident about using money.
MoneySense is provided for free because NatWest believe teaching young people about money is one of the most important ways to equip them for adult life.
