Sharon Davies, CEO of Young Enterprise and Young Money, said: “The Covid-19 crisis has tested the financial resilience of many families as well as disrupted in-classroom learning, elevating the need for more flexible and effective financial education resources to help young people build financial capabilities for a changing world. With support from our long-time programme partner HSBC UK, we have been able to develop Money Heroes as a bespoke and openly accessible platform that will evolve to help meet the needs of parents, teachers and young people, now and in the future.”

 

Stuart Haire, HSBC UK’s Head of Wealth and Personal Banking, comments: “We want to help children develop financial capabilities that will help them thrive for a lifetime, that is why developing innovative and impactful programmes like Money Heroes is so important. And with young people predicted to be hardest hit in the years to come as a result of the current pandemic, it has never been more important to focus on the life skills required to build financial independence and resilience from an early age.”
