We are offering an opportunity for young people (11-25) to apply for funding to purchase items that would benefit them in gaining employment, training, education or volunteering. The money for the youth fund is raised through URPotentials fundraising balls.

The money raised is to support young people who struggle financially to reach their full potential. The funds will be available upon application & can be requested by contacting URPotential.
