Trust funds

I know the whole child savings thing has been done before, but I've just searched the archive and can't find what I'm looking for.

I have money which I've been putting away for my children since they were babies. It's not a huge amount of money, but I hope it will continue to grow into a reasonable sum.

My children don't know about this money and I would like it to stay that way. My parents saved money for me when I was young, but I knew about it from about age 14 and once I knew it was there, despite being a reasonably sensible teenager, there was the temptation to spend it. And I did, age 16 it was frittered away.

Anyway. Does anyone know how I can put the money away, in their names, but without them having access until they are 18+.

Is a trust fund the answer? If so, how do I go about setting one up? TIA

My aunt had money set aside in some sort of endowment or bond with the prudential and they did not get it until they were 18.
