Money Saving Expert (MSE) Charity Opens for New Round

Funding for projects which support people from vulnerable communities to develop money-management and other financial skills.

Due to the cost-of-living crisis, MSE Charity has brought forward its usual September funding round and is now accepting applications under the theme of ‘Building and Developing Resistance’.

Small to medium-sized UK non-profit organisations with a constitution can apply, including UK registered charities, community interest companies, social enterprises and credit unions.

To be eligible, applicants should:

  • Have an annual income of less than £750,000.
  • Have unrestricted reserves that are less than six months of their running costs.

During this round, projects should focus on providing urgent money guidance and emergency debt help to those in need of support through the cost-of-living crisis.

There is particular interest in applications which use memorable, innovative, and or creative ways of delivering financial life skills which will make a lasting impact on the way people think, behave and manage their money.

The deadline to apply is 22 July 2022 (or as soon as 40 applications have been received).
