Dear Parent / Carer,
Re: 16-19 Bursary
We have been informed about a bursary from the YPLA for young people in school who fall into a vulnerable category. I have enclosed further guidance on this bursary.
The young person must meet at least one of the following criteria:
- Looked After - A letter from the local authority (usually a social worker/ transitional manager) to confirm the young person’s current or previous Looked After status
- Income Support - Recent entitlement or Award letter showing the young person is in receipt of Income Support
- Disability and Employment Allowances - Recent entitlement or Award letter showing the young person is in receipt of Disability Living Allowance and Employment Support Allowance
If you feel your child qualifies for this please can you bring this information into school as soon as possible.
I / We would like .......................................................... to apply for the 16-19 bursary.
I enclose supporting evidence. Please tick relevant supporting evidence.
Letter from local authority to confirm Looked After status.
Letter showing young persons entitlement to Income Support.
Letter / Recent entitlement notification showing young person is entitled to Employment Support Allowance AND Disability Living Allowance. (NB The young person must be in receipt of both these allowances to qualify).
