Sheffield housing association launches bursary fund

Have your say

A housing association has launched a bursary fund for young people who live in its 200 properties in Sheffield.

Your Housing Group is offering bursaries to residents aged between 14 and 25 years old.

The housing association has run the scheme for three year and is aimed at helping young people achieve their career goals, by giving grants to help them access work, training and further education.

Funding can be used for a range of things such as support packages and starter packs for college or university, help with travel costs or equipment, bus passes, volunteer expenses, bike safety gear, laptop and IT equipment, driving costs, driving lessons and job interview clothes.

Call Chris Brunold on 01925 59346 or Beckie Earnshaw on 01925 593469 to find out more and to request an application form before Monday, June 8.
