Enables young people to overcome the prohibitive costs to accessing employment education training opportunities.
The Bursary Scheme, funded by the H&M Foundation and Eversheds Sutherland, enables young people to access education, employment and training (EET) opportunities. The scheme provides young people with the prohibitive costs associated with accessing these EET opportunities. This includes costs for which a young person would normally turn to family support networks for support, such as course fees, specialist equipment and travel to/from work, college or university. The Bursary Scheme ensures that homeless young people are not prevented from pursuing their dreams due to personal circumstance.
Achievements since October 2016 – July 2018:
- 533 young people have been supported through the Jobs Coaching Programme
- 403 young people have accessed EET
- 367 qualifications have been achieved
