Starting Blocks

Starting Blocks logoOur 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.
