Take the next step into work, education, volunteering or training.

 

Development Awards can help to cover costs such as: course fees, transport or equipment to help you achieve your plan to get into education, training volunteering or employment. If you meet the eligibility criteria, you can apply for a cash award. Our average award is £175 and further funding might be available in exceptional circumstances.

 

If you are a UK resident and are:

  • Aged 16 to 30
  • No longer in compulsory education if aged 16 to 17.
  • Unemployed if aged 18 to 30, working less than 16 hours per week or in education for less than 14 hours per week.

 

Development Awards can be used to help fund:

  • Tools or equipment for a job or qualification e.g. hairdressing kit, carpentry tools, chef whites
  • Course fees
  • Interview clothes
  • License fees e.g. CSCS card (construction) or SIA license (security)
  • Transport to a new job until first pay cheque

 

Find out more information and leave your contact details, email solentoutreach@princes-trust.org.uk

 

If you meet our criteria, all you need to do is get in touch and tell us a bit about yourself and how the award would be used. If you’re eligible, you’ll be invited by one of our volunteers to meet with them to be supported to make a written application. The process can take up to six weeks, although it may be quicker, but we recommend getting in touch with us sooner rather than later.
