The MSE Charity has announced that its grants programme has re-opened for applications. The MSE 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.
Grants of up to £5,000 will be available for projects that aim to make people living with ‘Long Term Challenges’ become more financially capable. The focus of this funding ground will be on “Building and Developing Resilience” in particular:
- Mental Health
- Cook Well for Less
- Training Others
- Independent Living Skills
- Peer Mentoring
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 for applications is 5pm on the 25th September 2020. The charity limits each grant round to the first 40 accepted applications. Apply early in the month to ensure your application is considered.
