The scheme is funded by money saved from reductions and freezes to Cabinet Members allowances.
It is a monetary award to support children and young people living in the Borough of Telford and Wrekin up to the age of 25 years old who are in one of the following categories:
- Education, Training and/or Employment
- Performing Arts and Culture
- Sport Programmes
They must be recognised as gifted, talented, exceptional or excellent by their teacher, professional worker or mentor. The panel is particularly interested in children and young people who have overcome challenging circumstances to enable them to achieve their goal.
The scheme will provide grants of up to £1,000 per young person, to enable them to pursue their goals and aspirations, and fulfil their potential.
