Employment Grants

Our Employment Grant is available to both ex-Service people and their dependants.  It is designed to assist you if you are unemployed or have a low household income.  The grant can be used, for example, to fund short vocational courses and pay for work-related tools.

A financial assessment and evidence of a sustainable employment outcome will be required.  This evidence can be:

  • Written evidence that the grant will get you into sustainable employment.
  • Written evidence that you require a piece of equipment or a specific licence to remain employed; and that you are contractually required to supply your own licence or equipment.
  • A written recommendation from an employment or careers adviser showing that the grant requested forms part of an achievable plan to gain employment in a new sector.

To request an application form please call 0131 550 1557 or email GetHelp@poppyscotland.org.uk
