As part of the Link Up Youth Hub initiative, a discretionary bursary is available to support young people.

The bursary is there to actively support disadvantaged young people by removing the financial barriers preventing them finding meaningful employment.

Access to a bursary is not competitive and may be automatically awarded dependent on need or circumstances.

The bursary is flexible to meet the specific requirements of an individual in need, for example:

  • Providing access to skills training or relevant courses to securing future employment.

  • Provision of laptop or other IT equipment to support job searches, applications and/or training.

  • Clothing vouchers to cover work and/or interview requirements.

  • Driving lessons to improve opportunities with local employers.
