The Money for Life Challenge

Grand Final 2015
The Money for Life Challenge was a national competition which provided £500 grants for teams of 16 to 24 year olds to run a project to improve money management skills in their communities. The most inspiring and impactful projects progressed to the National Finals and the UK Grand Final, with great prizes on offer.

The Challenge aimed to empower learners to develop innovative, grass-roots money management solutions. Over four years from 2011-2015 1,000 teams of 16 to 24 year olds in Further Education, work-based learning, adult community learning or a training organisation took part, running money management projects in the local community.
