As part of our commitment to supporting the borough’s families and encouraging responsible money management, we have joined with the London Capital Credit Union to offer £20 to every child in school Year 6 or Year 7 in the borough to open a Young Savers account.
We want our children to be given the opportunity to learn about different financial options and how they will manage their money as they get older, and we are determined to help where we can.
By opening an account, your child will join up to 2,200 pupils across the borough getting into the savings habit early and learning how to avoid risky and high-interest borrowing in later life.
We will put £20 into every Young Savers account opened for a Year 6 or Year 7 child and this amount will be ‘locked in’ for one year to encourage pupils to add to their savings.
To claim your child’s £20, simply print and fill out the Haringey Young Savers application form (PDF, 91KB) and send to London Capital Credit Union at the address above.
