Telford & Wrekin Council’s seventh Young Person Grant scheme is now open to applications, giving young people the opportunity to benefit from a £500 grant to support getting into education or employment.
The Leader and Cabinet Members’ Young Person Grant 2023 provides up to £500 to young people who need financial support for education, training, or employment, as well as those who need help overcoming barriers that prevent them from achieving their full potential.
Applicants must be aged 15 (current Year 11 pupils) to 25 years and live within Telford and Wrekin, OR be a Telford and Wrekin Child in Care/Care Leaver who may live outside of the borough.
The Young Person Grant can be used to overcome any barriers preventing someone from getting into or back into employment, education or training, such as:
- Buying a new laptop.
- Purchasing tools to start a new business.
- Buying books for a new course.
- Covering transport costs.
