Young Savers

An account for young savers aged 0-10 years old

We believe it is important to encourage good financial habits from an early age. With our Young Savers account you can help your child build up their savings and develop a positive relationship with money.

Saving for the future

This account is perfect for you to save up for a child’s future or to save for things such as school uniforms, holidays, Christmas, and birthdays.

It’s also perfect if you are looking for an account for your child to start saving their own money.

Young Savers Scheme

We work closely with local primary schools to offer school saving clubs. Your child can deposit money into their Young Savers Account at the school, making it an easy and engaging way for them to save.
