Money for Life
Equipping a generation to make the most of their money
Since 2016, and as part of our ambition to help Britain prosper, Lloyds Banking Group has been in partnership with UK Youth to deliver our flagship financial capability programme, Money for Life. From empowering young people to feel confident and start talking openly about money to providing high-quality training and crucial support systems, Money for Life has equipped more than 32,000 16-25 year olds across the UK with the knowledge, life skills and provision needed to manage their money in face to face sessions, and engaged over 1 million people through its online advice and social media channels.
We originally launched Money for Life in 2010 because we knew giving people access to the skills they need to manage their money more effectively can transform their lives. From 2010 to 2015, Money for Life comprised two key elements: a Challenge, aimed at helping young people understand money management, and a set of Qualifications, helping those who help others understand how to provide money management education.
The Money for Life Challenge supported over 1,000 projects over its lifespan and six were subsequently awarded a Legacy Grant to continue their projects and make a longer lasting impact on their community. This was awarded a Business in the Community ‘Big Tick’ in 2014, read more about it here.
Through the qualifications we have accredited more than 4,000 learners across the Teach Others and Money Mentors qualifications, and this programme continues with a specific focus on equipping professionals in the Social housing sector to support their clients.
