How we can help?
We aim to give one-off grants to Sussex care leavers which will help them to transform their lives.
It could be: a suit for a job interview; a deposit for a first flat; some funds towards driving lessons; or a laptop for a college course. Care leavers can apply for funding of up to £1,500, explaining how it will help them reach their aspirations.
