A few weeks ago UK Youth and Youth Scotland went on the road to promote Money for Life at Scottish Financial Education Week. We toured Scotland asking people about their financial hopes, fears and expectations and shared them using #PiggyPower. We went to colleges, universities and city centres from Edinburgh and Glasgow to Stirling and Inverness.
Along the way we #PiggyPower champions stopped off at the Scottish Parliament to join financial experts, bankers, MSPs and the Scottish Cabinet Secretary for Communities. We introduced them to Money for Life and explained what the programme’s aims are.
The event was hosted in Glasgow by Money for Life’s partners Lloyds Banking Group, and participants were invited to work on some of the Money for Life programme modules to better understand the amazing work it does for young people across the UK.
Check out some of the highlights on social media #PiggyPower
