  • 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

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.
