WDH Foundation

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

If you're registered as living in a WDH property and aged over 16, the WDH Foundation Grant Scheme gives you the chance to apply for up to £1,500 every three years to help with educational support or to improve your professional opportunities.

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

You will be asked to demonstrate in your application how funding will help improve your employment opportunities and general wellbeing as well as your relevant skills and experience. Please note the nature of the grant scheme is competitive and making an application does not guarantee you an award. Decisions are given on applications around a month after each deadline.
