The MSE Charity is running a special Innovation Round whilst it is in a period of strategic review during which its normal grant giving is on hold.
Not-for-profit constituted groups/organisations within the UK that are previous applicants, existing grant holders as well as those that have never applied for an MSE Charity grant before are eligible to apply for this unique grant round.
The Innovation funding is available for applications that deliver financial capability. This means improving people's ability to manage their financial situation and developing their financial skills and knowledge. Applications must be innovative, testing out ideas that are genuinely new; that as far as possible do not overlap with projects funded by other funders.
Grants of between £2,000 and £15,000 are available for projects that are likely to be completed in one year; however, applications for up to three years will be considered.
The Charity's normal grants programme is expected to resume later in 2016. According to the MSE Charity, details will be posted well in advance online.
The deadline for applications is 10 June 2016 (5pm).
