Smart gaming: staying in control of your money

Sometimes the challenges you face aren’t just inside the games you love. How do you keep track of what you’re spending even when you're close to completing a level?

And it's not just your money. Don’t forget the data that you risk handing over to fraudsters.

To find out more on how to game safely, check out our gaming hub for tips on managing in-game spending, spotting the bad guys and keeping your identity safe.

HSBC UK Education Programme

If you are interested in running financial education sessions, you can nominate your school, youth group or charity. The education programme can be tailored to focus on specific age groups and needs so that you can get the most from each session.

Money Heroes

We know that parents and teachers play a key role in a child’s development. That’s why we support Money Heroes, which aims to teach financial education to children aged 3 to 11, both at home and in the classroom. It offers activities, storybooks and guidance to help develop knowledge, skills and attitudes for a successful financial future.

Money Skills Activity Badge

With our support, The Scout Association has created a new Money Skills Activity Badge to help Beaver and Cub Scouts build confidence and an understanding of money – in the Scouts’ uniquely fun, hands-on and supportive way. The new activities and badge are available to over 200,000 Scouts aged 6 to 10, with parents and carers able to get involved at home as well by visiting our Scouts Activity page.
