In response to the current cost-of-living crisis, the MSE Charity has decided to bring forward its next planned funding round, which was originally due to open in September this year. Non-profit groups will now be able to apply in June 2022 for projects which help to build financial resilience.
The theme for the next round is Building and Developing Resilience, and projects should focus on providing urgent money guidance and emergency debt help to those of in need of support through the cost-of-living crisis in the UK.
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.
Small to medium-sized non-profit organisations with a constitution can apply, including UK registered charities, community interest companies, social enterprises and credit unions.
The Charity has updated its eligibility requirements, and will now accept organisations with an annual income of up to £750,000. Groups must also have unrestricted reserves that are less than six months of their running costs.
Applications will open on 20 June 2022 and close on 22 July 2022 (or when 40 applications have been accepted).
