We are offering grants of £5,000 to £10,000 for volunteering projects that help people who are experiencing loneliness and social isolation. These Londoners are sometimes referred through social prescribing to small charities and voluntary organisations. The grants will help to develop the grantees’ ability to engage sustainably with social prescribing.

Since 2013, Team London has funded small organisations who support Londoners but may not meet the criteria for larger-scale funding. You can make an application and learn more about the Small Grants Programme here. We also have an application guidance document available here. The deadline is 13 September 2019.

Live Construction-related Apprenticeships Starting in September & Application Support

Source By: Say-Youth

Serious About Youth (SAY), the Black Training Enterprise Group (BTEG) and the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) are working together to provide an amazing opportunity for young people (16 - 24 years old) living in Hackney, Waltham Forest, Tower Hamlets or Newham that want to apply for apprenticeships starting in September 2019 to get access to live apprenticeships in a range of roles in the construction industry, as well as valuable support to guide them through the application process to enhance their chances of success.


The support will be provided through an intensive and engaging 1-week employability and application support programme from the 5th - 9th August, which will give them the opportunity to engage and learn from construction industry professionals; enhance their employability and soft skills such as interpersonal skills, problem solving, and preparing for assessment centres/interviews; and will give them hands on support to apply for the live apprenticeships attached to the programme. They will also receive on-going 1-2-1 IAG support after the programme and even after they secure an apprenticeship to help them sustain it.

Though this opportunity will suit young people with an interest in construction/engineering, we also want to attract other young people with an interest in STEM, business, IT and design that have possibly never considered the construction industry before and are potentially unaware of the diverse range of roles available in the industry such as Project Management, 3D Design/Digital-related roles, Quantity Surveying, and many others. We also particularly want to encourage participation from BAME and female candidates. We will have a number of live apprenticeships starting in September 2019 attached to the programme, some of which are: 

  • Apprenticeships with Keltbray in Business Administration (Level 2 & 3), Health & Safety (Level 3), HNC Engineering (Level 4), and Level 2 apprenticeships in Demolition, Formwork, Piling, and Groundworks
  • Engineering Apprenticeships with Careys
  • Level 1 & Level 2 Carpentry Apprenticeships with CDC Carpentry
  • Pipe Layer Apprenticeships with O'Halloran & O'Brien

Please do forward this e-mail and flyer on to any young people living in any of the 4 boroughs highlighted above - interested candidates would then just need to e-mail me (Rommell Wallace - to express their interest in the opportunity.
