With the UK officially in recession, economic recovery is now a major challenge. There is an urgent need to support people at risk of losing their livelihoods and financial security so that millions do not find themselves out of work, out of pocket and out of prospects.

Nesta’s Rapid Recovery Challenge will find and support tools and services that improve access to jobs and money for people across the UK, focussing on those hardest hit by the economic shock resulting from COVID-19: low-paid workers, people in insecure roles and those under 25.

The £2.8 million Challenge is funded by Nesta, in partnership with JPMorgan Chase Foundation and Money and Pensions Service.

Throughout the Challenge, Nesta will support innovators to develop and scale their potential solutions and expand their reach and impact. 

With funding and non-financial support from Nesta and partners, 12 semi-finalists will adapt and scale solutions that improve the job prospects or financial security of low-paid workers, people in insecure roles and those under 25.
