What are Development Awards?

Development Awards are grants of up to £500 to help young people who are struggling to access education, work or training due to a lack of funds. Please note that the average award is £200 and it is not possible to support every young person with a £500 grant.

Development Awards can be used to help with:

  • Equipment for a course, job or work placement (e.g. hairdressing equipment, joinery tools, books)
  • Course Fees
  • Industry specific qualifications e.g. SIA License, Forklift License, CSR Card
  • Workwear for a course, job or work placement (e.g. interview clothing, uniforms for college placements, mechanics clothing)
  • Travel to a course or placement
