We also recognise that the youth sector is very diverse and our training programme might not fulfil all of the training and workforce development activities of each voluntary and community sector youth provider.

As a result, we have ring-fenced a small element of the funding to enable organisation to apply for a £100 bursary to contribute towards the cost of specialist training or workforce development activities.
