Open a Young Savers account for your children and other young family members. Get them into the saving habit and teach them to put some of their pocket money and birthday money into their accounts.
They can then have the enjoyment of buying things that they want and learn to manage money.
Young Savers need to be under 16 and live or attend school/college within our common bond area – Stroud District Council or the Tetbury area of Cotswold District Council
As well as the Stroud District area we cover the parishes of Ashley, Avening, Beverston, Boxwell with Leighterton, Cherington, Didmarton, Kingscote, Long Newnton, Ozleworth, Rodmarton, Sapperton, Shipton Moyne, Tetbury, Tetbury Upton and Westonbirt with Lasborough
Check the maps below to see if the young saver lives or goes to school/college within the boundary lines.
