Financial resources for young adults

Helping to equip parents and educators with teaching tools and resources.

If you work with young people and would like to support their financial capability, here are some tools to help.

Our tools can help you to deliver financial capability sessions - from core learning about banking through to employability modules to help young people into the world of work. Sessions can be downloaded and delivered by you, or you can ask for an HSBC Education Lead to deliver these on your behalf.

These documents have been designed for you to be able to print and use at home or in an educator session. If you have any issues accessing them, we've also included relevant articles. These have similar key messages that you can use instead.

If you have any questions about HSBC Financial Education or you’d like a session delivered in your organisation, email our education team and we’ll get back to you:
