PREpaid cards for the homeless

That’s a great idea but unfortunately, I don’t think Monzo are going to be able to provide prepaid cards for this purpose, for a couple of reasons:

This came up at the time of the Grenfell Tower disaster & Monzo couldn’t provide cards for the residents because the prepaid cards required

They’ve also recently shut down their prepaid card program which was costing them an unsustainable amount of money.

However at the time, the team said that

& they do plan to offer their current accounts to the unbanked so they might be able to provide another solution for this, without using prepaid cards :crossed_fingers:
