Your Opportunity: Help for 18-24 year-olds
Your Opportunity supports disabled and seriously ill young people, aged 18-24 years old, who are living at home. Young people cannot apply on their own, the application has to come from the parent or carer.
Funding for Your Opportunity is limited and we will accept applications from families on a first-come, first-served basis until the funding is fully allocated. Grants are available across the UK.
Who can apply?
You can apply if you can say yes to all of the following:
- You are the main parent or carer of a disabled or seriously ill young adult aged 18-24, who lives at home with you
- You have not received a Your Opportunity grant on behalf of this young adult in the past 12 months
- You have lived in the UK for the last six months
- You have a low household income, or if you receive a benefit such as Universal Credit, Working Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit etc.
On Monday, Mayor Sadiq Khan launched his biggest scrappage scheme ever. The £110 million fund will support Londoners on certain lower incomes, disabled Londoners, London-based charities, sole traders and business with 10 or fewer employees prepare for the expansion of Ultra Low Emission Zone London-wide on 29 August this year. Successful applicants will receive funding to scrap or retrofit their old, polluting vehicle.
To accompany the scrappage scheme, the Mayor and TfL are also announcing a range of ULEZ support offers from businesses for all Londoners, including additional exclusive offers for successful applicants of the scrappage scheme. This will enable Londoners to benefit from discounts and promotions on subscriptions, rentals and purchases of bicycles, e-bikes, cargo bikes, cars and vans.
It follows the Mayor’s decision to expand the ULEZ London-wide from August, which will mean five million more Londoners breathing cleaner air. Already around 85 per cent of vehicles seen driving in outer London meet the standards, meaning the majority of drivers will not need to pay. The new scrappage scheme and grace periods will help drivers of the remaining non-compliant vehicles prepare.
