Young People's Fund
If you’re aged 16 to 25 and a Rooftop resident, or you’re getting support from Rooftop you could get a grant to help you into work or training.
We can help cover the costs of training or getting into work, and that could be as simple as new interview clothes or exam fees.
If you’ve already looked into other grants from the Job Centre, local charities, or local colleges and not been able to get help then please apply to us.
The Young People’s Fund gives grants of up to £300, but you can only get one grant per year.
To support your training we can help with…
- Exam fees
- Course fees
- Residential or trip fees
- Course materials
- DBS checks
- IT equipment
- Transport costs
If you need help getting into a job we can help with…
- Licence fees (such as SIA, CSCS)
- Transport to interviews (please check if you’re eligible for these costs with the Job Centre)
- Interview clothes
- PPE (personal protective equipment needed to start work, such as safety boots)
Or any other item that will help you get into work or training.
