  • No longer in compulsory education if aged 16 to 17.

Development Awards can be used to help fund:

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.
