Unlocking success with the NHC Bursary Scheme

Blackpool Coastal Housing

The Unlocking Success Bursary Scheme, funded through the Northern Housing Consortium (NHC) Charitable Trust, will award bursaries of £500 to help tenants develop learning and skills to support future employment.

What can they fund?

A bursary award can support with the cost of learning itself, or if tenants are already involved in an area of learning, it can help to fund:

  • books
  • equipment
  • travel costs
  • childcare
  • living costs
Who can apply?

 To be eligible, bursary applicants must be:

  • 16 years old or over
  • Housed by a social landlord who is a full member of the Northern Housing Consortium
  • using the grant to enhance skills to further development

 The application process

Applications must be submitted before 5th July 2022 by the social landlord on behalf of the tenant. There is a basic application form to complete along with a short 'pitch' from the tenant which can be provided either in writing or by video, which tells NHC how the bursary could make a difference to them. 

Once the NHC has received the application form, a panel comprising selected NHC Board members, NHC staff and selected bursary scheme donors or corporate sponsors will review the applications received, and you will be notified of successful or unsuccessful award of the grant.  We will make payment to successful applicants shortly after.
