Bishop Laney’s Charity

Grants are available to help apprentices and university students with their training and further education. The charity occasionally helps sixth form students, and young people attending overseas projects. However, the charity gives priority to university students and apprentices.

To apply you should be under the age of 25 and living in the Parishes of Ely or Soham in Cambridgeshire.

The fund can help with the cost of outfits, clothing, tools, instruments or books.

The usual grant is £250 for the first year of the course, and then £150 for each year of a three-year course.

Apprentices would receive £1,000 for a three-year apprenticeship over the three years.
