Young Person’s Start Up Grant

Closing Date: –

Grants are available to support young people in Wales that are unemployed, left education or training or in the early stage of business to become self-employed.

The Welsh Government has announced plans to support 1,200 young people to start their own business as part of plans to foster a new culture of entrepreneurship among the younger generation in Wales.

A total of £5 million will be spent over the next three years to deliver on the self-employment aspect of the Young Person’s Guarantee, which will provide everyone under 25 in Wales with the offer of work, education, training, or self-employment.

The stated aim of the initiative is to make Wales a place where more young people feel confident in planning their future.
