Transforming lives through money advice & education.
Money A+E is an award-winning social enterprise that provides money advice & educational services to disadvantaged groups, Diverse Ethnic Communities (DEC) and young people.
We recruit our beneficiaries as staff and volunteers, meaning that our services are based around lived experience and empathetic peer support.
Our mission is to empower individuals by providing accessible, independent, and effective money advice and education. Why the community needs us
There is a cost of living crisis happening right now in our communities.
Food and rent price rises are rising far beyond wages. Average energy bills have risen by an incredible £700 per year, with another £629 expected to be added just as the cold weather hits. It is low-income households who will feel this pain the hardest.
At Money A+E, we are already seeing our most vulnerable clients struggling to stay afloat. More and more people need our support with ‘deficit budgets’: meaning that their income simply does not cover their household expenses. Donate today, and your support could be the life raft that keeps a family afloat.
Your gift could mean that a person living with disabilities does not have to choose between eating, and heating their home. It could mean that a single mother does not have to live with anxiety over debt, or feel pushed towards loan sharks at the school gate.
Thanks to your donations we provide 1-2-1 debt, benefits and money advice sessions for those in financial difficulty.
Our expert advisers support people to manage their debts, and to maximize their income through accessing grants and benefits that they may not have been aware of. Your gift could fund an emergency grant for a household in the most severe financial hardship. Our grants of £100-350 are given to help households cover food and utility bills in a time of crisis
