Telford & Wrekin Council’s Young Person Grant Scheme 2021

Telford & Wrekin Council is asking young people – what could you do with £500? Young people aged 15 to 25 have the chance to apply for a grant until 23 July.

Help 15 - 25 year olds to aim higher with the Young Person Grant 2021.The grant is intended to help young people overcome barriers that may be preventing them getting into employment, education, or training.

Open to people aged between 15 and 25 years old, the grant can be used for a wide range of things, such as a new laptop, tools for a job or business, books for a course, uniform or interview clothes, or even just transport.

According to Telford & Wrekin Council, “the scheme is open to young people who have a desire to commence in or return to education, employment, and training, but due to their [or their] family’s circumstances, are restricted or unable to fund the activity themselves.”

You can apply for the grant once a year. If you are unsuccessful, you can apply again the next year. If you are successful, you can apply again in three years.

You must be aged between 15 and 25, and a resident of Telford & Wrekin, to apply.

The application deadline for 2021 is 5pm 23 July.
