New bursary scheme for tenants

A new bursary scheme will offer awards of £500 to tenants to support learning opportunities

The Unlocking Success Bursary Scheme will award bursaries of £500 to help you develop your learning and skills to support your future employment.

The bursary covers a study period of up to a year and can support you with the cost of the learning itself, or if you are already involved in an area of learning it can help to fund books, equipment, travel costs, childcare or other living costs that will help you to complete a period of learning.

The scheme is run by the Northern Housing Consortium, a membership body of housing associations and local authorities.

To be eligible to apply for the bursary, you must be aged 16 or over and housed by a social landlord. You must be using the bursary to enhance your skills to further your development. This can be at any level.

You can apply to the bursary scheme via your social landlord before the 16th March 2020.
