Make a Start (MAST)

Small grants made to individuals to help them get back to work, into training or education, where funding from a statutory organisation is unobtainable. Applicants should be 16 years or over and currently working no more than 16 hours per week. Specific training that will lead directly to available employment or support to become self employed will be considered.

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.
