The MSE Charity has announced that its grants programme will re-open for applications on the 3rd February 2020. The charity gives grants to not for profit organisations that deliver activities which make a lasting impact on how people think, behave and manage their money.
The MSE Charity is dedicated to supporting UK voluntary groups delivering financial life skills which make a lasting impact on the way people think, behave and manage their money. Grants of up to £5,000 are available for projects that aim to make people living with ‘Long Term Challenges’ become more financially capable. Grants will be offered to build financial capability by assisting groups who support people living with:
- learning difficulties;
- caring responsibilities;
- mental illness;
- brain injuries
Eligible applicants will be registered charities, Community Interest Companies (CICs) and other not for profit companies and Credit Unions. Preference is given to projects that break new ground in approach, delivery or in audience and are either capable of replication to a wider audience and/or are collaborative i.e. working with other organisations in the field, or geographical area as appropriate.
The closing date is the 28th February 2020 or when 40 applications have been received.
