Are You or Someone you Know Eligible for an Edward Starr Award? If the answer is yes, then get your application in by November 1st
If you or someone you know is aged 10 – 18 years old and could do with a helping hand in the areas of Art, Sport or Education, you could apply for up to £5000 and receive an Edward Starr Award. For older young people up to the age of 25, you could be eligible for an Enterprise Award.
Local charity The Starr Trust, based in Hove, supports young people to achieve more in their lives through their potential in Art, Sport and Education and where possible, offers opportunities for connections and mentoring through their wider network of local experts.
The young person must live within the BN postcode area, come from a low income background, and fit one or more of the following criteria:
• 1. Don’t have family support
• 2. Are experiencing difficulties in their lives
• 3. Have emotional, physical or learning challenges
Regardless of talent the Starr Trust team is looking for applicants who need support to help them grow as people, who see an opportunity for personal development but would be unable to move forward without their help. Edward Starr Awards are not about what you are now, but who you could become.
If you go to their website you will find all the information you need and the application forms: www.starrtrust.com/apply
If you are still unsure whether or not you qualify for an award please contact the Awards Team by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call their office on 01273 715882.
Their next applications are being considered in December 2019. If you would like to apply for yourself or on behalf of someone else, please complete the forms online or print out and send via the post before the 1st November 2019.
