Why ride for MyBnk?

Everyone needs to be able to manage their money, it is just common sense. But for young people the inability to do so has serious consequences. For them, it is easier to fall into debt, be scammed, make uninformed decisions and establish bad money habits.

The need for effective financial education is now a right – especially for vulnerable young people.

UK personal debt is at a record £1.63 trillion, around £8,000 per person; this is hardly surprising given that 90% of the UK population have never received any form of money management lessons. Youth unemployment stalks Europe and the traditional routes to employment are changing. This generation will have to make smarter financial decisions and create their own opportunities.

The money you raise for MyBnk will ensure that our expert trainers can provide life-changing survival money management workshops to some of the most vulnerable young people in the UK, such as care leavers, those unemployed or out of education, offenders and young parents.

With your support we’ll teach them how to prioritise debt, identify financial stress triggers, confront doubts, misconceptions and bad habits – ultimately breaking down the barriers they too often experience to living successful independent lives.

"MyBnk has definitely changed my life... Young people need this kind of help if we are to stand on our own two feet, and pay our way. It's not just pride, it affects everything. I would not be positive about the future if I felt I had no control over it." Matt, 18.

Ride for Team MyBnk and helps us to create a financially capable and enterprising generation.
