The EBS Building Societypartnered with the NationalAdult Literacy Agency(NALA) to develop aprogramme, which wouldhelp to target the growingissue of family and nancialliteracy. Prior to entering thepartnership, EBS recognisedthat many challenges existedin tackling the barriers tofamily and nancial literacy.In today’s society, theavailability of increasinglycomplex nancial products
and the growing need to

heritage in providing
educational support, EBSunderstands that familyliteracy development isparticularly important, asparents are the rst andmost constant educatorsof children. Family literacy

adult basic education, the
organisations are working
together to help tacklenancial literacy and to

to nancial products and
services for those with
