Help your children grow up to be savvy savers

At a glance - saving for children

  • Start teaching your children how to save from an early age
  • Teach your children the value of money by giving them pocket money
  • Encourage your children to start saving with a piggy bank or under-16s bank account

Start early

Good saving habits introduced early will last your children a lifetime.

Teach budgeting

Getting pocket money can help start children on the road to understanding the value of money. It teaches them whether to spend it all straight away or save up for something special by putting something away regularly.

Encourage savings

It can be as simple as starting them off with a piggy bank or a moneybox and encouraging them to save money from birthday or holiday presents. For older children, many banks offer special accounts for under-16s.
