Helping children learn vital financial skills

Young Enterprise (YE) is a national charity that passionately believes that every young person should have an equal opportunity to learn the vital skills to earn and look after their money.

Thanks to funding from the Westminster Foundation, the charity has started work with 15 additional schools in Westminster, Chester and rural Lancashire, helping over 2,000 young people develop an enterprising mindset.

Learning is practical, delivered through hands-on activities, workshops, and resources. YE delivers a range of financial, enterprise and employability programmes, from day-long workshops to year-long programmes where young people devise and run their own trading company. 

The charity is addressing the fact that nearly 5.3 million children and young people in the UK do not receive meaningful financial education and almost half of young people aged 17-23 years believe their education has not prepared them for work.
