The Money for Life Challenge is a financial capability programme where a team of learners (aged 16 – 24) accompanied by an adult sponsor can apply for a £500 grant to devise and demonstrate their own novel ways to teach others in their communities how to manage money.

 

Toynbee Hall is one of the official England partners for Money for Life Challenge and this year’s competition was a roaring success. There were 250 submissions, and the young people involved inspired with their energy, enthusiasm and brilliant ideas for how to tackle money management in their communities. A team from Northern Ireland clinched the overall winner spot with their “Bouncing Babies” project, and the Challenge also received fantastic entries from all across the UK.

 

 

Those of you who got involved this year might spot your students speaking to camera or in the crowds. We also hope the video might be a good way for you to promote the Challenge to a new groups of young people this year, so please feel free to share. 

 

Applications will open online early September and run until late November. We will let you know if your application has been successful by early December, and you’ll have until mid March to complete your project and submit your project summary. Finals will be held in April and May next year.

 

If you want to be kept up to date with the Challenge and be notified when it launches this year, please go to the Money for Life Challenge website and register your interest now.
