Family Workshop

4 – 19

With the support of Leicester City Council, we've developed a set of resources to support a 90-minute workshop, designed to help families explore money learning in the home. The workshop focuses on helping families explore money learning together. Parents/carers will discover ways to include their children in everyday discussions and actions related to money thereby improving both their children's financial capability and in turn, their own too. The content is adaptable for parents/carers with children of any age and contains activities that are easily deliverable by non-educators and non-financial education experts.
