Our Starting Blocks fund exists to help those who need money quickly; throughout the year, ‘Starting Blocks’ grants (£2000 or under) are able to be quickly granted via an internal panel consisting of the Head of Resident and Community Engagement, tenant volunteers from our e-panel and one member of our Resident Representative Team (RRT).
How can I spend the money?
Examples of how you can spend the money you receive include but are not limited to:
- Gaining qualifications e.g. forklift drivers licence or a Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Hairdressing.
- Purchasing equipment to help with your small business
- Anything else which could help realise your potential.
