Are you aged 18-30 and either self employed or running your own business? You could be edible for a grant and/or extra support from The Prince’s Trust to see you through the Covid-19 crisis.

The Prince’s Trust and Nat West Enterprise Relief Fund has £5million to distribute as grant funding, along with one-to-one support to help businesses through this time.

Grants can be used to maintain core business operations during the crisis, as well as meet any existing financial commitments, such as paying for essential equipment or settling invoices from suppliers. Additionally, grants will also support young people to diversify their business to respond to opportunities created by the crises. In conjunction with grants, the initiative will offer one-to-one support and guidance to any applicants who need it.

To be eligible to apply, you must be a business owner aged 18 to 30, who set up their business in the last four years and don’t have any other source of income during the crisis.

You can register your interest from the fund via The Prince’s Trust website.
