Applications to the Moving On Up Fund are closed

We are now in a phase of analysing the impact of the fund and are looking for funding partners to continue the grant scheme. If this could be you, please contact [email protected]

The Moving On Up fund, in partnership with LandAid, offered young people grants up to £1000 to help them overcome key financial barriers to move-on.

We knew that young people who can't live at home face specific financial barriers that prohibit them from moving on to a thriving future.

Who was it for?

We encourage applications from:

  • Young people aged 16-25
  • Who live in one of our member services
  • Who are ready to move on successfully into independent accommodation
  • But face a financial constraint that's holding them back

What costs could be covered?

The fund is intended to contribute to the most common financial blockers young people face that can prevent them from moving on. This includes:

  • A deposit for a property
  • Rent payment in advance
  • Dual rent payments
  • Utilities bills in advance
  • Debt repayment
  • Moving costs, eg van hire, packing materials
  • White goods, eg fridge/freezer, washing machine
  • Some soft furnishings, eg curtains, carpets
