Prince's Trust

It's a collaboration between the Prince's Trust and Nat West and is open to anyone running a business aged between 18 and 30.

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.

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.

Every young person who gets in touch will be offered personalised one to one support to connect with mentors or build their skills.
