TheSite.org and Barclays Money Skills
Find out more about our Money section sponsor - Barclays Money Skills.
TheSite.org is run by the charity YouthNet. Without the help of our funding partners, we couldn't keep making TheSite.org the most useful place on the web for young people. So a big thanks to Barclays Money Skills for the sponsorship of our money pages. We rely on this kind of support to keep going.
What is Barclays Money Skills?
Barclays Money Skills is a national money management programme, developed by Barclays, that helps young people to develop and improve their financial skills, knowledge and confidence. The programme provides independent information on a range of topics such as budgeting, saving and spending, opening a bank account, as well as providing practical guidance on what to do when something goes wrong.
As well as partnering with YouthNet, Barclays is working with respected charities including Action for Children, the National Skills Academy for Financial Services, and the National Youth Agency to help one million people improve their financial skills by 2012.
YouthNet is proud to be part of this programme because we know how important good money management is for young people. Through our partnership with Barclays Money Skills, we can ensure users of TheSite.org's money section get access to information which is factually accurate, clear, and trusted.
What exactly is the relationship between Barclays and TheSite.org?
Let's be clear: we couldn't make our money information the great resource it is without the help of our sponsor.
