LifeSavers Programme

LifeSavers Programme

LifeSavers is an innovative, values-based financial literacy programme that gives children the knowledge, skills and attitudes to manage their money wisely.

Our values-based approach to financial education explores what it means to be wise, generous, just and thankful with our money, recognising that attitudes are as important as knowledge and skills in shaping financial behaviour.

LifeSavers is a unique programme for primary schools offering a whole school approach that provides:

  • Resources and training for teachers to embed financial education into the school curriculum

  • Support for school savings clubs to give children a practical experience of handling money

  • A whole community approach that involves parents, credit unions and others in helping children learn about money

We provide a unique morals based approach to financial education, realising that the key concepts and skills are as important as is learning what to do with money.
