Make a Start (MAST)

Small grants made to individuals to help them get back to work, into training or education. Applicants should be aged 16 and over, live in Lincolnshire and be entitled to work in the UK. They should be in receipt of benefits or work no more than 16 hours a week.

If funding is available elsewhere, it is unlikely MAST will assist. Grants of up to £250 may be used towards obtaining qualifications, work clothes or equipment, course materials, travel to work or training.

Referrals made to Foundation staff who forward details to a local assessor. Rolling programme with monthly meetings.
