1. Made of Money and Moneytalk Islington are award-winning financial literacy projects supporting low income families in east London, run by charity Quaker Social Action.

    In 2011 we ran some workshops with year 5 students and their families at Highbury Quadrant Primary School in Islington, in conjunction with Little Angel Theatre. We used puppetry as a tool to get kids thinking about money with their parents. A group of families then went on to complete Made of Money workshops covering issues such as advertising and branding, the difference between needs and wants, household bills and savings.

    Made of Money is also available as a train-the-trainer course for anyone working with people on a low income across the UK. Visit http://www.quakersocialaction.com/madeofmoney for more details.

  4. Made of Money, a project of east London charity Quaker Social Action, supports families on a low income as they talk, listen and learn about money and its impact on their lives. Parents and families who have taken part in Made of Money, and QSA staff, talk here about the stresses and strains of bringing up a family on a limited budget and how the practical and emotional support of Made of Money helps families take positive steps to deal with the problems money, and lack of money, can cause. The film was made through the generous support of the City Bridge Trust, one of QSA’s funders, and is directed by Thomas Stark Holland of Utmost Media Limited.
