Our work, methodology and impact in financial education and enterprise has been repeatedly recognised in awards from think tanks, sector magazines and voluntary organisations. Here are a select few:
MyBnk has won a national award for our work helping young people manage their money and start their own enterprise.
We were recognised as demonstrating excellence and achievement in what we do and deliver a clear benefit to young people, many of whom are disadvantaged by poverty, or are marginalised in some other way.
We were recognised as providing the initiative that has done the most to help young people leaving the care system make a smooth and successful transition to adulthood by supporting their accommodation, health, housing, and training and employment needs. Read the judges comments here.
MyBnk was also commended for providing a project where young people have played a key role in planning their independent living. See more on how we help vulnerable young people, including those leaving Care and looked after children.

MyBnk have won an award from respected think-tank, the Centre for Social Justice.
It recognises us as an organisation helping people out of poverty and dependence, and into a life of independence and freedom – challenging the root causes of poverty.
In addition we received £10,000 to continue our important work and now join the CSJ Alliance of over 300 of the most effective grass roots, poverty-fighting organisations.
This award was decided by young people and those working to give young people the support to succeed.
