Training grants

We can offer small grants to help with training and education. Grants cover:

  • Training and course fees
  • Child care costs
  • Books, tools or equipment

We can not provide grants for laptops or computers. You can access computers for free at our UCAN centres. 

To qualify for a grant you must meet three criteria:

  1. Be a Bolton at Home tenant or an immediate family member
  2. Not be in breach of your tenancy agreement
  3. Be 16 years or older

Will a training grant affect my benefits?

You will need to check if your grant affects the benefits you receive. 

How can I set up an arrangement to pay off my arrears?

If you are having problems with your rent account, please contact a member of our Income Management Team or our Debt and Money team on 01204 328000.
