Free Money for Your Return to Work or Study

You can benefit greatly from training or further study. Whether or not you are already established in a career, a spell at college can be a real boost to your future prospects, and can great be fun too.

Whilst we are all agreed on the benefits of further study, not all of us are in the position to take such a step. Fees can be high, even for "fun" rather than work orientated evening courses at your local college.

Don't give up! There are still options available to you. Hundreds of charities and trusts have money bequeathed to them in order to help people - people just like you, to progress.

Charities have funds allocated to help with course fees, the costs of equipment, such as a computer, or to help pay for clothing and travel expenses.

There are 3,500 charities in the UK with funds available, so there is bound to be one to help you.

Turn 2 Us

The place to go to is Turn to Us at www.turn2us.org.uk. Here, you can find a searchable database with details of every charity and trust in the UK as well as details of their grant criteria. Simply input your age, gender and location and the search engine will do the rest for you.

You can view an in depth article on how to apply for funding here, complete with an example letter which you can base your own application letter on.

If you need any help with Turn 2 Us, you can always Turn 2 me :-). Please contact me via Career Addict with any queries about which charity to choose, or what to say in your letter. 

Good luck!
