Thank you for your interest in entering the Money for Life Community Challenge 2018. 

The Money for Life Community Challenge is a UK-wide competition to find the most innovative and impactful ways young people can share their money management skills with friends, family and those who really need them.

We’re offering a £400 grant to teams of young people to design and deliver their very own social action project tackling a money issue in their community. Once you’re project is complete, you’ll receive a further £200 for your project report AND the chance to represent your region at this year’s National Awards ceremony in London!

Before you begin make sure you have the following:

  • A team - with 4-10 people the majority aged 16-25 and a youth organisation to support you
  • A project idea – that tackles a money issue in the community for a specific audience
  • A plan – what do you want to achieve and how will you achieve it
  • A budget – letting us know how you’ll spend your grant
  • A time frame – letting us know when the project will take place and completed
 
You should have also taken part in the Money for Life Money Masterclass so that you can tell us which skills you’ll be sharing with your community.
