GoHenry
An easy way to pay pocket money
About GoHenry

goHenry helps young people learn how to manage money responsibly under the guidance of their parents. Combining web and mobile apps, with a Prepaid Debit Card with Parental Controls, goHenry gives 6 to 18 year olds hands on experience of managing money within a safe and controlled environment.

Set up by a small group of parents and friends, unable to find the right tools to teach their own children about money. In the time that has passed since our first members joined goHenry, we have developed to incorporate more and more features, making it an invaluable tool for young people and their parents – 80% of whom tell us it’s helped their children become more financially responsible.

In 2016, goHenry saw incredible success with our Crowdfunding campaign with Crowdcube. Our original target was £2million which we reached during the first 48 hours after we opened our funding round to our members. It has been great to see how many parents believe in goHenry so much that they wanted to become our investors too. We raised £4 million in total, happily exceeding our expectations.
