The next WDH Foundation Grant window is now open for tenants to apply.

If you are registered as living in a WDH property, the scheme gives you the chance to apply for up to £3,000 in any one year to help with educational support or improving your professional opportunities.

Only individuals over the age of 16, and not groups, will be accepted, with each application considered on its own merits.

Anne Challoner, Corporate Engagement Manager, said: “We hope the WDH Foundation Grant Scheme will make a real difference in helping individuals of all ages in our communities enhance their development and achieve their career and educational goals.”

The closing date for this round of funding is 12 April 2019.

WDH has a non-repayable grant scheme to get people into work and boost their skills.

If you’re registered as living in a WDH property, the WDH Foundation Grant Scheme gives you the chance to apply for up to £3,000 in any one year to help with educational support or improving your professional opportunities.

You will be asked to demonstrate how funding would help improve your working opportunities, increase your learning potential or provide access to training courses.

Examples of what the money could be spent on could include paying for training schemes, buying equipment for courses, funding childcare or securing a monthly bus pass to travel to college.

Only individuals over the age of 16, and not groups, will be accepted, with each application considered on its own merits.
