Why should we pay tax? Do we all pay our fair share? And how should we pay for the things we all need to lead healthy, happy and safe lives?

Through playing this simulation game, learners will discuss and draw their own conclusions about whether everyone pays their fair share, as well as reflect on how things might be made fairer.

Learners aged 7-14 will start to increase their awareness of what tax is, how the money is spent, and our shared responsibility for public services.
