Employment Support Grants

If you’re looking for work but don’t have the right qualifications, our Employment Support Grants of up to £2,000 can help.

Employment Support Grants can be applied for if:

  • The training is vocational
  • The training is up to 8 weeks long
  • There’s a strong likelihood the training will lead to a long-term job

Employment Support Grants can be applied for by:

  • Unemployed veterans and their families
  • Veterans and their families who have a household income of less than £22,000
  • Service leavers who are within 13 weeks of discharge

You can apply directly via www.civvystreet.org – once you register online someone will contact you to discuss the process in more detail.

If you would like further information before applying call 0131 550 1568 or email GetHelp@poppyscotland.org.uk
