Information for Parents and Guardians
Every Young Savers account must be opened with the agreement of a trustee aged over 18 such as a parent, guardian or grandparent who will have overall responsibility for managing the account until the child turns 16.
It is generally recognised that a basic financial education given during childhood provides important life skills and can help raise children's future aspirations.
Student Savings Scheme
Causeway School in Eastbourne are the first to launch a Students Saving Scheme that will be managed by pupils and staff. Launched in partnership with the East Sussex Credit Union, students at the local comprehensive, along with their parents and staff, will be able to access their account whilst at school. You can read more about this initiative here.
The SmartCash Junior Account is the great new way for Credit Union members aged 8-16 to receive their pocket money or other funds, then spend them safely on the high street or online whilst still being under parental supervision. You can find out more about Smartcash here.
