The MSE Charity has announced that its grants programme has re-opend for applications. The MSE Charity provides grants to constituted community based groups (including schools) to help fight financial and consumer illiteracy and to educate and inform adults and children about consumer and debt issues.

Under the programme, grants of up to 5,000 are available for group projects such as self-help groups, schools, workshops and other innovative schemes that seek to educate people about money, debt and consumer issues.

Individuals over the age of 18 can apply for a grant of up to 500 to help pay towards a recognised and approved course that will help improve their ability to budget and manage their finances.

The grant can be used to pay for financial education course fees and other associated expenses. Groups that have been supported in the past include Helping Hands for Refugees; Torbay Advice Network; The Holy Catholic School; and Asperger East Anglia.

The programme will close once 40 completed applications that meet the criteria have been submitted
