Surrey Young People’s Fund
Surrey Young People’s Fund provides grants to individual young people (aged 16-25 inclusive) who are resident in Surrey. The Fund helps young people to access education, training, apprenticeship or employment. This could also include taking part in volunteering, to help them gain skills relevant to employment.
Grants from the Fund are modest – typically up to £300. Applicants are likely to be financially disadvantaged and might typically be educational under-achievers, not in full-time employment, or be restricted by health conditions. They might also be carers, care leavers, or ex-offenders.
Young people can use a grant to help overcome any barriers to taking part in training, volunteering, or employment. For example: covering travel costs; paying for training courses; buying equipment or clothing.
If your organisation does encounter disadvantaged young people, who you think might benefit from this type of support, please do get in touch with the Community Foundation for Surrey. They would be very happy to talk to you and your team.
