Young Women’s Trust Grants Service

Helping young women aged 18-30, living in England and Wales, who have limited financial resources, to overcome practical barriers to work

Young woman

The Young Women's Trust Grants Service provides financial support to young women aged 18-30, who have limited financial resources, to help them overcome practical barriers to work.

The scheme is available to women living in England and Wales, who are claiming work-related state benefits and actively looking for or committed to progressing in work.

What is the Young Women's Trust Grants Scheme

The Grants Service is easy to use. Young women just need to complete an online application form telling the Trust about themselves and what they need to help them find work or improve their work situation.

The charity does not give cash but will buy things on young women’s behalf that they think will help them. This might include:

  • Clothing and looking smart for interviews and at work

  • Courses and other training opportunities

  • Technology, including laptops, tablets and software

  • Tools and goods, particularly if you want to work for yourself or are self-employed, for example as a builder or hairdresser

  • Transport costs, and getting to work or interviews.

An average of £350 is spent on each grant – with a maximum amount of £500.


The deadline for the next round of applications is 17th July 2017 (by 12 noon).

Further rounds will follow until the end of the year.

How to apply and further information

The application process involves answering a number of questions – which can be done online using a mobile, tablet or computer.

For further information and to access an application form, please see the Young Women's Trust website's Grants Information page and the Frequently Asked Questions page on the Young Women's Trust Grants Service
