Small Grants Programme

We provide grant support for eligible people working towards a career/volunteering in the social care/welfare sector for them to access learning and development opportunities up to a level 4 point. In some cases, the Trustee Panel will accept applications from Social Work Degree students. We do not support MA/postgraduate courses. The grant of up to a normal maximum of £200 can be used for study related expenses (e.g. travel, equipment, books). All applicants will be considered on an individual.

Applicants must:

  • Live in Liverpool City Region
  • Be aged 18 or over
  • Demonstrate a commitment to their community (e.g. volunteering)
  • Demonstrate a need for financial support
  • Have indefinite leave to remain(ILR) or permanent residency (PR)

Our grants can only be accessed after attending a grant search 1:1 with one of the Team. We support applicants to identify and access other potential grant makers because we understand that our grant may not cover the full study expenses.
