School Saver Clubs
FAIRshare works in partnership with local schools to help young people get into the savings habit and learn money management skills.
We will help Schools to set up a Savings Club and will provide training and support for volunteers that are in place. Weekly or fortnightly collection points can be set up and run by school volunteers in conjunction with the children. There is no direct financial cost to the school.
We recommend schools take an active part in the running of the School Saver Clubs and encourage the school to get their pupils involved. The scheme can link into the National Curriculum by developing personal, learning and thinking skills (PLTS).
