Wesleyan Foundation has donated almost £80,000 to Little Chicks Life Lessons - enabling the programme to be delivered to 10 primary schools across the West Midlands. It’s provided 9,450 books and reached around 3,150 children.

Wesleyan has also supported the publication and distribution of two new books by Little Chicks Life Lessons. One was specifically created in partnership to introduce early awareness and increase children’s understanding about the importance of savings and forming healthy financial habits.

As part of the support, Specialist Financial Advisers from Wesleyan Financial Services also delivered financial wellbeing workshops and webinars to every teacher within the funded schools.

Nadeem Bashir, Principal at Shirestone Academy, one of the participating schools, said: “The Little Chicks Life Lessons programme has had a such a positive impact on our children and teachers, inspiring them to explore their dreams and aspirations in a creative and structured way, as well as developing their financial awareness at an early age. We are thankful to Little Chicks Life Lessons and to Wesleyan for the dedicated resources provided to our school and the wider support for our teachers.”

Alison Delaney, founder of the programme, added: “On behalf of all the children, teachers and schools that participated in the programme and benefitted from the funding provided by Wesleyan, I want to say a huge and heartfelt thank you. Your support will have a positive impact on the confidence, skills and prospects of the young children in our region and help them to develop their aspirations and dreams as they go through life.”

Nathan Wallis, Chief of Staff at Wesleyan, said: “We’re committed to supporting the customers of tomorrow understand the importance of personal finance today. That’s why we were delighted to support the Little Chicks Life Lessons Education programme, a ground-breaking education initiative focused on building confidence, self-belief and financial awareness in children.”
